Bounce Back Loans Scheme (BBLS) with HSBC

i If you would like to apply for a Top-Up to your existing Bounce Back Loan, please follow this link.

The HSBC Bounce Back Loans Scheme is one of a number of different options that could support you with your needs at this time.

There may be other options available to you which are more suitable for your borrowing or cash-flow needs. This could include, for example, an alternative lending product, considering repayment holidays on existing debt or exploring other government grants/schemes available. You should consider your options carefully before applying for this loan.

Please review our full range of products at and other types of support at HSBC coronavirus support. Should you feel that another product is more suitable, the product webpages will advise on how you can apply for that product.

What can BBLS do for my business?

BBLS can provide you with loans between £2,000 and £50,000, with the first 12 months of interest covered by the government. There are no repayments due for the first year. A fixed interest rate of 2.5% shall apply.

If you already have a Bounce Back Loan and didn’t apply for and receive the full amount you were eligible for, you may be able to apply for a top-up to your existing loan subject to set parameters and eligibility guidelines.

Please complete the form below. We will use any information about you and individuals connected to your business subject to and in accordance with our Privacy Notice. Without prejudice to our Privacy Notice, please note that your information will also be used in accordance with the data protection declaration set out below and the British Business Bank Privacy Notice. We use strictly necessary cookies, which we explain in our Cookies Notice.

Before you (or anyone on your behalf) provides information on individuals connected to your business to us you must ensure that you have a legitimate interest, lawful purpose or the agreement of the relevant person. You must also ensure they’ve been provided with our Privacy Notice, which explains the way in which their information will be processed and their rights in relation to their information.

If your application for a Bounce Back Loan or a Top-Up loan is successful, we may perform a credit check on you or your business as well as the individuals linked to that business such as partners or directors. Although we will not be using this credit data to assess your application, we need to undertake this in order to conduct our standard fraud checks. This will leave a record of an “enquiry” search on your credit records.

The searches will not have a negative impact on your credit score, but other lenders may take into consideration that a search has been conducted when making lending decisions. If several searches are performed in a short period of time, this can have a greater impact on a credit score and may impact an individual’s or business’s ability to successfully secure credit or quoted interest rates in the future.

We will also register an entry of the Bounce Back Loan with credit reference agencies.

If you do not make your repayments on time we may take the following actions which could have serious consequences for you:

(a) cancel all or part of the loan and our obligations to you under it;
(b) demand immediate repayment of all amounts due to us under the loan; and / or
(c) declare that all or part of the loan is repayable on demand,

but we will give you advance notice and (unless the problem cannot be fixed) the opportunity to fix the problem before taking any of these steps.
If you fail to make your repayments on time we may also disclose information about you and the conduct of your loan to credit reference agencies (which may make it more difficult for you to borrow in future).
