Second Loans

Don’t forget that if you have already received a Start Up Loan you could be eligible to apply for a Second Loan through the Start Up Loans scheme. Detailed below is the criteria for applying for a Second Loan.

-Your business must have been trading for at least six months but cannot have been trading for more than two years.

-The additional finance must be for the same business as your first Start Up Loan.

-Your total outstanding Start Up Loans balance cannot exceed £25,000 at any one time (per individual). So if you borrowed £15,000 for your first Start Up Loan, and now have a remaining balance of £10,000, you are able to apply for a Second Loan of up to £15,000.

-The total lent to any one business cannot exceed £100,000 (including all individual business partners).

-You will need to demonstrate that you can afford the ongoing repayment on your first loan and the new repayments on your Second Loan.

-You must still meet all of the original Start Up Loan criteria.

-You must have made six full repayments on your first Start Up Loan.

-The repayments on your first Start Up Loan must be fully up to date at the time of applying.

-In the last six months, you must not have had any late or missed repayments on your first Start Up Loan.

-You cannot have been on a reduced repayment plan or Interest-Only period (capital repayment holiday) within the last six months.

-All applications are subject to credit check and business assessment.

-If your application is successful, your Second Loan will be treated as a separate loan to your first Start Up Loan, including separate monthly Direct Debit payments.
