Guarantee Removals

Removal of the guarantee is in general instigated when a lender submits a request to remove a guarantee to the British Business Bank, usually when they have made all manner of errors and shouldn’t have paid out a BBL etc.

The payments on each facility are reviewed and where BIP (Business Interruption Payment), SLF (Scheme Lender Fee), or a claim is either paid or received, the amounts are refunded accordingly. The lender is then issued with a communication confirming the guarantee is removed from the facility.

As at 11 October 2023, the government guarantee has been removed from 10,786 loans to a total value of £979,202,191. Guarantee removal values and volumes can and do fluctuate; guarantees can be retrospectively removed or added at any given time. It is important to note all amendments are processed in accordance with the British Business Bank & Scheme governance requirements.
