What is Business Loan Protection?

If a business owner dies or is suffering a severe illness, lenders may have the right to demand that any outstanding loans are paid back. These could be difficult to pay off at short notice. Loan Protection provides a lump sum to cover business loans. If a business owner lends money to their own business, creating a Director’s or Partner’s loan account, this may also need to be repaid on death.

Some business loans may also have personal guarantees, if the business fails due to the death or illness of an owner or key employee and the business doesn't have the funds to repay the loan, the guarantee could be used by the bank and put personal assets, including the owner’s home, at risk.

Lenders may have the right to demand that the business pays back any outstanding loans and this could be difficult to pay off at short notice.
