Small Firms Loan Guarantee Scheme

The DTI's Small Firms Loan Guarantee Scheme provides a government guarantee for loans by approved lendors. Loans are made to firms or individuals unable to obtain conventional finance because of a lack of track record or security.

The guarantee generally covers 70% of the outstanding loan. This rises to 85% for established businesses trading for two years or more.

At the time of writing, loans can be for amounts between 5,000 and 100,000 (250,000 for established businesses) and over a period of two to ten years.

N.B. Not all businesses are eligible for a loan and there are some restrictions on their use.
