Bounce Back Loans and Liquidations

Can I liquidate my company if it has taken out a Bounce Back Loan?

In short yes. Businesses may still find trading difficult during or after this turbulent period, even with the extra funds from the loan. Recovery may not be realistic so liquidation and closure is the most suitable course of action.

What happens to the loan in liquidation?

In the event of a company being liquidated, the bounce back loan turns into unsecured debt.

Can I be held liable for an unpaid bounce back loan?

Not usually. In the event of a company being liquidated, any personal guarantees signed by a director means that director remains liable for the debt.

Directors however, generally are not liable for an unpaid bounce back loan because they usually 100% guaranteed by the Government and not by the director.
