State-backed low interest rate loans

The Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment and the Department of Agriculture Food and the Marine have recently launched a new loan scheme, the “Brexit Impact Loan Scheme” targeted to SMEs (including farmers and fishers) and small mid-caps that have been impacted by Brexit.


Brexit Impact Loan Scheme

The Brexit Impact Loan Scheme (BILS) is available to eligible businesses impacted by Brexit.

  • Loans from €25,000 to €1.5m
  • Loan terms of one to six years
  • Reduced interest rates
  • Loans up to €500,000 unsecured
  • Loans can be used for 100% refinancing of existing Brexit Loan Scheme loans or refinancing of existing short-term credit, up to a maximum of 30% of the new loan.
