The UK lending market has undergone a seismic shift. The government loan schemes established to help businesses mitigate the effects of COVID-19, CBILS, CLBILS and BBLS, have ended. Now, these support measures have morphed into a new government scheme, the Recovery Loan Scheme, and lenders have returned to market-based lending.

Alongside this, COVID-19 has seen a rise in the number of new lender entrants to the market looking to make a splash, as well as other lenders withdrawing from the market entirely.

This session explores the recent changes within the lending market and provide insights to business advisors, accountants and practitioners that they can better equip their clients and become the go-to source for all things finance.

On 15 June, Funding Options will be participating in a live panel discussion of accessing to finance for clients.
