Funding for Lending

The Funding for Lending Scheme is supported by the Bank of England and the British government. As part of our participation in the scheme, we have reduced the interest rate by 1% on all approved loan, commercial mortgage and hire purchase applications received after 10th September 2012.

Reducing the borrowing costs for small and medium-sized businesses is just one way we're going further to help our customers, and Britain, prosper.

  • Discount applies for the whole life of the loan.
  • Available on all approved business loans, commercial mortgage and hire purchase applications received after the 10th September 2012. Available until further notice.
  • Normal arrangement fees apply.
  • All businesses are eligible and there are no additional criteria to that of standard lending eligibility.

Any property given as security, which may include your home, may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage or other debts secured on it.

All lending is subject to a satisfactory credit assessment and we will need your permission to carry out a credit check on you and your business.

You should not apply for an amount that you cannot comfortably afford to repay now and in the future to avoid the possibility of legal action.
