The Bounce Back Loan scheme was introduced in March 2020, with the aim of providing businesses easy access to emergency funding during the first wave of the Covid-19 pandemic. Over a million companies took advantage of the scheme in the first four months alone, with this number growing to over two million by the time applications closed to new borrowers. This has equated to more than £47.36bn worth of Bounce Back Loans which now need to be repaid.

  • Using Bounce Back Loan to pay tax bills – Bounce Back Loans were introduced in order to help businesses weather the storm of the Covid-19 pandemic. Company directors were given the freedom to use the loan in whatever way would help their company survive.

  • Extending your Bounce Back Loan - You are now able to extend the repayment term of your Bounce Back Loan. This will allow you to repay the money borrowed over 10 years rather than 6. Before extending your Bounce Back Loan, you should weigh up the pros and cons of doing this as there are significant financial implications.

Due to the scale of potential losses, the government - who provided security for each and every Bounce Back Loan - is facing huge pressure from taxpayers to ensure as much money is recovered as possible. As a result, banks are being asked to take a hard line with those who attempt to strike off the company with an outstanding Bounce Back Loan, and legislation is being rushed through to trigger investigations into those companies that do successfully manage to have their business struck off while leaving an unpaid balance on their Bounce Back Loan.
