Government Supports

The SBCI Brexit Loan Scheme makes a fund of up to €300 million available to eligible Irish businesses. Finance provided under the scheme is easier to access, more competitively priced, and offered at more favourable terms than other lending for such businesses.  For more information on eligibility and the application process click on the above link.

 

  • The SBCI SME credit guarantee scheme is a State backed loan fund that can assist SMEs to restructure their cost bases and re-price their products and services so that they can continue trading with the UK in the weaker Sterling environment. Loans made to SMEs, on the basis of viable business plans, can also give them the opportunity to diversify into other markets and reduce their exposure to the UK.
