SBCI Lending Schemes Enquiry Form
This form is for business customers who are either:
- affected by economic challenges from the Russian invasion of the Ukraine
- investing in the long-term growth and sustainability of their business.
Ukraine Credit Guarantee Scheme
If your business has experienced at least a 10% increase in costs over 2020 because of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, support is available
under the Ukraine Credit Guarantee Scheme from us through the SBCI.
Growth and Sustainability Loan Scheme
If your business is seeking longer term finance to invest in climate action and environmental sustainability or the growth and resilience of your business, support is available under the Growth and Sustainability Loan Scheme from us through the SBCI.
To find out if your business qualifies for either scheme, the first thing to do is to complete an Eligibility Form available on the SBCI website at https://sbci.gov.ie. If eligible, the SBCI will provide you an Eligibility Code. When you give us that code on this form we will contact you about applying.
We don’t make recommendations or give advice about any particular loan or scheme here but filling out this form will help us decide what type of loan suits your business needs. This form isn’t the loan application and you won’t receive a loan just by filling it out.
If you need help with this form you can call us on 0818 478 833 Monday to Friday from 9:00 to 17:00.
