Bounceback loans - Further detais have been released about the Bounceback Loans, designed to help small business to borrow up to £50k. Companies can apply from May 4th.

Our sources say that thelenders are being aggressively encouraged by government to provide loans, and to do so quickly (as in days, not weeks) so this might be the best bet for you if you have a small business to apply a quickly as possible. It can be used in conjunction with the Business Relief Scheme. We will update once we have more information released
