Tide Bounce Back Loans are finished


#1

So we finally have an update from the CEO, getting a bounce-back loan from Tide is never going to happen, they have failed to secure the funding and are lobbying the government to step in instead.

They should’ve never announced accreditation or applied for it in the first place unless they were certain to secure the required funding. They have caused unnecessary and considerable heartache for numerous businesses during this complete fiasco.

When there was no tracker. And no news it was on the cards. Shambles.


#4

Funny that’s the case cause I also discovered only this morning that they weren’t offering bounce back loans loans to sole traders


#5

I never new they advised that no lending to sole traders. Didn’t say that on opening an account or registering interest.
More lies from them

When did u open your account

Hi there, thank you all for joining the discussion.

To clarify, changes in legislation did come into effect that allowed us to lend to Sole Traders as well as limited companies.

While we have unfortunately had to pause in lending, and I understand how this must be a very difficult moment for many of you, we are still going to be in discussions with HM Treasury in regard to securing more direct support from the Government.

Sorry you are talking absolute nonsense regarding Sole traders !! I went to metro and opened a business account and had a bbl within 24hrs and lm a sole trader !!!
Cannot believe you are still trying to dangle the carrot of funding just be honest there will be no funding at all to anyone.
You never had a tracker in place because you knew that you will not get funding!!!
I’m so so sorry for the members who will lose there businesses because of this shambles !!!

I do understand your frustration with this, @Oscarsadie1

It’s definitely a blow to us as well to have not been able to extend the loans to our members, be they at the head of limited companies or sole traders.

Even so, we’ll still do everything we can to see the scheme and the funds it’s meant to provide to as many people as possible.
