Tips for applying

Make sure you have a clear idea about of the purpose of the loan and include this in your business plan.

Prepare paperwork, such management accounts, financial accounts, and information about business assets, before you apply.

Applying through Swoop will allow you to find the right type of borrowing, at the right rate, from the most relevant lenders to your business needs.

Unlike earlier COVID-19 loans the British Business Bank is not paying the first year’s interest and fees. Make sure you’ve factored this into your forecasts.
