The Enterprise Finance Guarantee Scheme

Designed to support bank lending for firms having difficulty accessing funds

The Government guarantees the majority of the loan.

Here are the key points

The Enterprise Finance Guarantee Scheme is designed to support bank lending, for terms of three months to ten years, to UK businesses with a turnover of up to £25 million who are currently having difficulty accessing the finance they need.

This new scheme has replaced the Small Firms Loan Guarantee scheme and has been expanded to include more businesses, make higher amounts of funds available and allow more flexible use of the funds.

It enables businesses to secure loans of between £1,000 and £1 million through the Government guarantee and the availability of the scheme has been extended to 31 March 2011.

The guarantee can be used to support new loans, refinance existing loans, or to convert part or all of an existing overdraft into a loan to release capacity to meet working capital requirements.

Eligible businesses are sole traders, partnerships, franchises, co-operatives and limited companies, either trading or about to trade in the near future.

Take advantage of our free initial consultations and financial assessments for the Enterprise Finance Guarantee Scheme by emailing us here and we will have one of our specialist advisors call you back immediately.

Here’s the important bit

The availability of funds through the Enterprise Finance Guarantee is fully delegated to the participating lenders. There is no automatic entitlement to receive a guaranteed loan nor is there any pre-qualification process for it.

These funds are available and are being made available by the banks but you need to get the application process right from the very beginning.

The participating lenders are mostly the high street banks with a number of other financial institutions, most of whom we deal with on a regular basis and so we are ideally placed to assist interested businesses in accessing these funds.
