For details on the scheme and to find out more on eligibility, please speak to your branch.

Please note: The government provides the lender with a guarantee, however, your business will always remain responsible for repayments of 100% of the outstanding debt. 

Any property or asset used as security may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on any debt secured on it. 

Our lending facilities are only available to persons aged 18 or over and are subject to status. Written quotations and terms and conditions are available on request.
