Bounce Back loans – have you got yours?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, we're running a story about bounce back loans. A few dealers have told us they're still waiting for the bounce back loans they applied for months ago. Are you one of them?

You might get a better response in the private lounge rather than everyone discussing their business practices for all to see.

I have three different businesses one benefited from a cash injection the other two didnt need anything pointless borrowing for the sake of borrowing.

Cant see the point of a business taking a loan if they cant make it pay , surely a business would have to be able to buy extra stock and sell it to earn the extra money .

Many business types  are not in the fortunate spot are they , take a hairdresser , gym etc they cant use extra cash sensibly 

Car traders have the opportunity but only if they have the space and advertising capacity for extra stock . 

Plenty of people near us have had the money and its been spent on various items from Quads , Caravans , American muscle cars , Motor bikes , New Speed boats , that's just what i can see :o not going to earn extra profit from those items :(

Going to be some funny happenings next year when pay back starts isn't there , 

Great opportunity if they make it work though

I heard some comments floating around that the banks expect 40 % plus of borrowers will not be able to pay the loan back, also a shocking figure of 35% of bbl loans paid out under later inspection where to dormant companies with zero activity on there account.

I don’t think the taxpayer will be liable for bank lending errors.They will know who they have issued loans to and those who receive them with their connected parties will be made personally liable for their repayment. I can imagine the banks will be charging those who default penal interest rates and will not think twice about snatching money back from the wrong people.You know what they are like,they will probably profit from the defaults.

There lies the problem there not bank errors the bank followed the relaxed lending criteria from the government during the second wave of hand outs, and if you consider a business not paying back a loan at 2.5% there not going to be bothered if the bank ups it to a default rate of what ever the defaulted rate may be if they do not have the good conscience or business sense to pay a cheap loan back doubling the interest is hardly going to incentivise them to do so. 

The banks are also not going to be that bothered about chasing for the money they will of course send out the normal run of the mill letters and maybe the odd court order but after that where is the sense in them spending additional thousands when they can easily turn to the government for the loan to be settled in full without any additional costs to them.

Exactly - all this is a scandal waiting to happen and the good old taxpayer ends up taking the hit while the deficit keeps climbing

I’m watching this with interest. HMRC very wary of the problem and now trying to work out the solution.

Last idea I read was making it like student loans, you pay back when profits allow. Given that profit is a fudgeable number then they’ll have to audit books to be on top of it properly (eg exclude director and family member salaries)

Whatever they do then they need to be harsh early on to get the message across.

This is what MTD is aiming for to avoid physical audits.
