“As the economic effects of the pandemic continue to develop, the UK’s banking and finance industry remains committed to helping the nation’s businesses through the crisis,” Stephen Pegge, managing director of commercial finance for banking trade body UK Finance, said.
“The government-backed loan schemes are just one part of the industry’s broader plan for helping the nation’s businesses, and operate alongside commercial lending, capital repayment holidays, extended overdrafts and invoice finance facilities.
“It is important to remember that any lending provided under government-backed schemes is a debt not a grant, and so firms should carefully consider their ability to repay before applying.”
