The impact of COVID-19 is being felt across different business sectors.
These impacts are leading to a number of financial needs for our business customers, including the provision of emergency working capital, prioritising loan decisions for impacted customers, payment flexibility on loan facilities, the provision of provision of the government CBILS scheme for term loans and overdrafts and the provision of foreign currency & treasury products to support sourcing products from new suppliers internationally.
Customers who are concerned about the impact of COVID-19 on their business are encouraged to make contact with their Business Relationship Manager, email us on BBNICovidfirstname.lastname@example.org or call 0800 109 010 (9am to 5pm Monday to Friday).
It is important that businesses are proactive in assessing their capability to withstand disruption, from both an operational and a financial standpoint, and that they act decisively to mitigate actual or potential issues caused by the spread of COVID-19.
