Availability of Capital

Each applicant must have or will have sufficient capital available to meet their lending forecasts for
the duration of the Scheme Period, covering smaller business lending both with and without BBLS
Where the availability of or freedom to deploy that capital is subject to conditions which may affect
its ability to be used for BBLS-backed lending then this must be declared (this is likely to be especially
relevant to those applicants making use of capital originating from public sources, including EU
programmes, and subject to continuing conditions). In such cases the applicant should verify the
position with the provider(s) of the funding concerned.
