The following government-guaranteed Covid-19 business loan schemes will be extended until the end of March 2021. These schemes were due to close at the end of January 2021.

Financial support will be available, beyond the March 2021 deadline of these loan schemes, through a successor loan scheme. Further details of this scheme will be announced in due course.

A wider update on Covid-19 economic support will be given at the next Budget, on 3 March 2021.
