The Bounce Back Loan is designed to inject much needed cashflow to businesses to get the cogs of the economy moving again. If your limited company cannot bounce back, and has to close down, what happens? Well, usually bank borrowing is underpinned by a director’s personal guarantee which results in you having to repay the debt, when you’ve just lost your income. Ouch!
The BBL is different. As a director, you DO NOT give a personal guarantee to repay the debt. So, if your business doesn’t bounce back, and has to close, you are personally NOT responsible for the debt. This is not normal, but is GREAT NEWS for directors; you are not personally at risk.
