SBCI – Brexit Impact Loan Scheme
At Permanent tsb we are here to provide opportunities for your business to unlock potential and grow.
That’s why we have partnered with the Strategic Banking Corporation of Ireland (SBCI) to provide the Brexit Impact Loan Scheme (BILS).
The Brexit Impact Loan Scheme supports qualifying viable Irish businesses and primary producers (Agriculture/Fishing) by providing access to affordable medium-term finance, enabling them to invest in their business.
The scheme will run for a limited period or until it is fully subscribed.
The Brexit Impact Loan Scheme is designed to help address the economic impact of Covid-19 initially
on those businesses that have been impacted by Brexit.
Loans can be used for:
v Working capital and investment loans to support SMEs and Small Mid-Caps (including primary producers) impacted primarily by Brexit;
v Loan amounts from €25,000 to a maximum of €1,500,000 per borrower (loan amounts are dependent on aid intensity and State aid thresholds)
v Loan terms of between 1 year and up to 6 years (loan terms are dependent on the purpose of the loan).
v Loans are unsecured up to and including €500,000.
v Amounts greater than €500,000 may be secured;
SMEs and Small Mid-Caps must satisfy one of the following Brexit criteria:
v Export products, services or raw materials to the UK (including Northern Ireland) equating to at least 15% of business turnover.
v Import products, services or raw materials from the UK (including Northern Ireland) equating to at least 15% of business turnover.
v The combined exposure (of 1 and 2 above) equates to at least 15% of business turnover.
v The business is indirectly exposed to the UK (including Northern Ireland), i.e. transacts products, services or raw materials with an enterprise that is directly exposed to the UK (including Northern Ireland) equating to at least 15% of turnover.
