Bounce Back Loan Scheme

In our previous report Overview of the UK government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic we signalled our intention to report on how government has managed the risks created by its response to the crisis. This new investigation will look at the government’s Bounce Back Loan Scheme. It will describe the scheme’s purpose and how it functions; performance to date; and how government manages the associated value for money risks.

As part of this investigation, we are interested in the perspectives of key stakeholders such as the scheme applicants, accredited lenders which promote and implement the scheme, and other experts.

If you would like to provide evidence for our study please email the study team on, putting the study title in the subject line. The team will consider the evidence you provide; however, please note that due to the volume of information we receive we may not respond to you directly.
