Small Business Loans up to £25,000
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 Loan Servicing Account until your Business Loan is repaid. There are no day-to-day fees or charges for these accounts provided there are sufficient funds to cover your repayments. 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. There are no day-to-day fees or charges for these accounts provided there are sufficient funds to cover your repayments.
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.
1 A Guarantee may be required for Limited Companies and Limited Liability Partnerships.
