The Rose Review
The Rose Review into female entrepreneurship identified that disproportionate family care responsibilities is one of the main barriers that women mention when asked about starting or running a business. The report also states that financial institutions should do more to support entrepreneurs at the time when they might need it most because they have to look after their family. We want to offer you flexibility for your business, when you need it most.
Family First offer
Who can benefit from our Family First offer?
Eligibility criteria OpenClose
We could help lighten the load when you might have to take time out of your business.
Starting from £500 up to a max facility size of £25,000
If you have a Family First event, you could apply for added benefits to your business, to help smooth any bumps in your income during this period.
Our normal overdraft criteria apply but we’ll waive the annual arrangement fee once during the Family First period.
If you already have an overdraft we’ll waive the renewal during the Family First period.
Capital repayment holidays on Fixed and Variable rate loans
Starting from £25,001
If you think you need a more substantial investment in your business, you might want to consider applying for a Fixed or Variable rate loan.
You could take a Capital Repayment Holiday for an agreed period of time at the start of the loan or for a period of up to 6 months during a Family First event. You’ll still need to pay the interest and will switch back to a full repayment after that.
