• Islands Coronavirus Disruption Guarantee Loan

  • The Islands Coronavirus Business Disruption Guarantee Loan Scheme provides financial support to existing local business customers across the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man who are experiencing a loss of revenue and cash-flow disruption as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak.

    The scheme is a government response to the impact of Covid-19, whereby a Government Guarantee is offered to support 80% of the borrowing within the scheme.

    The loan may be offered to existing business customers who have a viable business proposition, but unable to obtain finance on normal terms due to an absence of security, or where security may be difficult to take due to the impacts of Covid-19.

    It is important to note that the client remains 100% liable for the debt.
