Enterprise Finance Guarantee Scheme – EFG for delivery partners

Launched in 2009, the Enterprise Finance Guarantee Scheme encourages lending to viable UK businesses that would be turned down for a loan or other form of debt finance, due to inadequate security.

It does this by providing accredited lenders with a Government-backed guarantee for 75% of the facility value ( subject to an annual claim limit at portfolio level).

The British Business Bank’s guide: Understanding the Enterprise Finance Guarantee, explains the scheme in greater detail, including how to apply to become an accredited lender and which lenders are accredited under the scheme.

We are currently looking for new lenders to become accredited for the Enterprise Finance Guarantee scheme.
