Expression of Interest Form
The Coronavirus SME Guarantee Scheme was established to support up to $40 billion of lending to SMEs, including sole traders and not-for-profits. Under the Scheme, the Government guarantees 50 per cent of new loans issued by participating lenders to SMEs.
Phase 1 of the Scheme is available for loans written by participating lenders until 30 September 2020. To enable continued support for businesses in recovery, and for those facing the ongoing impact of the pandemic, the Government has extended the Scheme to be available to loans written until 30 June 2021. Lenders who would like to participate in Phase 2 of the Scheme are invited to submit an Expression of Interest by completing this form. Submissions close on Friday 16th October 2020.
