Support from your Bank

Banks have various Customer Care programmes on offer.  These largely consist of the following:

  • an increased temporary overdraft facility for up to three months
  • discounted interest rates
  • principal holidays and a move to ‘interest only’ loans
  • asset finance loans to help fund key items such as plant/machinery/vehicles
  • trade finance extension of repayment terms.

Your bank’s care packages should be your first port of call and considered in advance of the government guarantee option. Here’s links to source the most up-to-date information:
