Representative example

*APR means annual percentage rate of interest charged against your loan which is a combination of Bank of England Bank Rate (variable) and an interest margin which is fixed for the term of the loan.

7.1% APR based on an assumed unsecured loan amount of £8,000 with 60 monthly repayments of £158.03 at an annual interest rate of 6.9% (variable). Total amount payable £9,481.80.

**APR means annual percentage rate of interest charged against your loan which is a combination of Fixed Rate Cost of Funds (Fixed) and an interest margin which is fixed for the term of the loan.

7.1% APR based on an assumed unsecured loan amount of £8,000 with 60 monthly repayments of £158.03 at an annual interest rate of 6.9% (fixed). Total amount payable £9,481.80.

The representative APR is an illustration of the highest rate that we expect to offer up to 51% of successful applicants.

Applicants may receive a different rate of interest based on their individual circumstances.

Our representative APR applies to all unsecured loans with a borrowing amount of up to £25,000 and for businesses with a turnover of up to £25 million. This figure is not necessarily the rate you will be receiving and is for illustrative purposes only.

There is always the possibility that interest rates may go down, leaving a fixed rate loan at a higher level compared to a variable rate loan. However, if interest rates rise, a fixed rate loan will remain at the same rate. 

  • Do I need to have a Business Current Account with Lloyds Bank to apply for a Business Loan?

    You can apply for a Lloyds Bank Business Loan without having a Business Current Account with us. If your application is successful and you do not wish to open a Business Current Account with us, we will open a fee-free Loan Servicing Account until your Business Loan is repaid. You will be given this choice during your application.

    We are only offering the government-backed Recovery Loan Scheme to existing Lloyds Bank business customers. If Lloyds Bank do not provide your main business relationship, please speak to your main bank for support in the first instance. 

    Can I switch my Lloyds Bank Business Current Account after taking out a Business Loan?

    Yes, you are able to switch your Business Current Account to another provider while retaining your Business Loan. If you choose to close your Business Current Account with us, we will open a fee-free Loan Servicing Account until your Business Loan is repaid.
