As the UK’s largest retail and commercial bank, we have taken steps to ensure that we are ready for Brexit and can continue to be a major provider of lending to support our small business customers. Lloyds Bank is committed to supporting you through Brexit whatever your level of preparedness.
In January 2019, we announced our support for UK businesses with a pledge to lend £18bn over the year, as part of our continued commitment to helping Britain prosper2.
Our business teams support a wide range of businesses, from entrepreneurs looking to start a new business to micro-businesses seeking to scale up, to small businesses considering trading internationally for the first time, to mid-sized businesses and large multinational corporations pursuing growth opportunities.
In uncertain times you need financial support and expert guidance to navigate the unique challenges you may face. Whatever the future brings we will continue to be by the side of British business.
We have a long established relationship with the British Business Bank and we will continue to work with them to support businesses like yours through this period of uncertainty by continuing to offer products such as the Enterprise Finance Guarantee scheme.
The EFG is just one of the schemes provided by the British Business Bank. Further information on SME finance options can be found at www.british-business-bank.co.uk/finance-hub/
