Over 40,000 businesses joined our waiting list in a matter of days. As you can imagine, we can’t immediately offer Bounce Back Loans to this number of you at once, so we’re taking a phased approach to ensure compliance with the scheme rules, a smooth process and repayment of the loans.
We have been lending Bounce Back Loans to our members since 19 May. (We initially beta-launched with a select number of limited companies who had been with us for a while, before making the loans available more widely.)
We’re now working through our waiting list as quickly as we can, delivering loans daily. Unfortunately, we still can’t guarantee everyone who registers will be able to get a loan from us but we’re working hard to make the loans available to as many of you as possible, as well as providing more clarity on timelines.
I hope this will address all your questions.
I can confirm that if or when you can access a Bounce Back Loan from us, we’ll message you by email or app notification.
I also wanted to let you know that we are working to provide an automated solution for you to see your place on our waiting list as well as provide clearer timelines regarding when you can expect to gain access to a Bounce Back Loan with Tide.
Hope this helps.
