Financially prepare to Return to Work.

Chamber members Begbies Traynor, Bathgate Business Finance and UK Export Finance are panellist on our finance focused Return to Work webinar Tuesday 16 June 11am via Zoom.

Accessing funding during COVID-19 has become an integral part of a business's strategy as they map out their road to recovery. The government has introduced a number of loan schemes to support businesses negatively impacted by the global pandemic - BBLS, CBILS & CLBILS however, are you financially ready to restart your business or have you been forgotten?

This crucial webinar will provide you with factual answers to your questions, find out what support is available to you if you are one of the forgotten businesses and help you uncover practical solutions to your financial issues to enable you to return to work and restart your business.


Paul Trickett, Bathgate Business Finance - In my role at Bathgate I seek to simplify what's on offer and demystify the process, during this crisis period and also in a 'normal' climate.

The most common questions that we are being asked by business owners are:
• What are the COVID-19 Business Grant Funding Schemes? Which grants are we eligible for/what are the eligibility criteria?
• Where do we access these grants?
• How do we apply?
• Where can I apply for a BBLS?
I will be answering these and more at this event.

Keith Tully & Jason Greenhalgh, Begbies Trayor - What happens if businesses cannot repay Bounce Back Loans?

With businesses struggling to survive the financial and economic impact of coronavirus, an extensive government support package has provided welcome relief for some. Following the initial measures, and criticism of the CBILS programme, the Chancellor introduced the Bounce Back Loan Scheme (BBLS) to help small businesses access emergency funding.

This scheme is fully backed by the government, requires no repayments for 12 months, and can be repaid early without penalty, but what are the implications of taking out a Bounce Back Loan if businesses cannot afford to repay in the future?

Keith and Jason will be joining the panel to discuss this and more.

Kevin Ledwith, UK Export Finance – With manufacturing one of the first industries to go back to work, how has this affected your finance and order book if your supply chain has not yet returned to work.

Kevin will be on hand to answer your questions and provide some much needed guidance.
