Start Up Loans

A Start Up Loan is a government-backed unsecured loan for business purposes.

Start Up Loans of up to £25,000 are available to startups and new businesses trading for up to three years. All owners or partners in a business can individually apply for up to £25,000 each, with a maximum of £100,000 available per business.

Eligible businesses that have been trading for between three and five years and previously received a Start Up Loan can also apply for a second loan to support their expansion.

Start Up Loans provides funding at a fixed interest rate of 6%.

Applicants can also access free business plan, cash flow and budget templates to submit with their application. If approved, applicants benefit from 12 months of free mentoring support.
