How It Works
If your current provider is not listed, there are now lenders that will offer the BBLS without using them for your main bank account.
View our list of accredited Bounce Back Loan lenders.
If you have a bank account with a lender listed then you should apply through them.
The BBLS appliaction process has been simplfied and will only require a short form be complete.
You can expect funds within a few days. In some instances, the lender may ask you for additional information.
Protect Your Business
Business protection insurance protects your business against the illness, disability or death of directors or employees. Effectively you get personal life and income protection cover paid for by your business, with various tax benefits.

However, if your company has received a CBILS loan of up to £50,000 this might be able to be converted into a Bounce Back loan. You can apply to do this with your lender until 4 November 2020.
Similarly, if you receive a Bounce Back Loan you may be able to apply to convert it to a CBILS loan if you require more aid, though this has still to be clarified.
