Johnson Reed has been accepted and approved by Accredited Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS) Lenders as an Accredited Lending Partner, allowing businesses and suppliers the opportunity to apply for vital business finance.

As an approved intermediary, the Stockport-based business finance specialist can make applications for companies that have been trading for a minimum of 3 years, applying for loans between £50,000 and £250,000 with a guaranteed APR of below 9 per cent and no repayments due for the first 12 months.
