NPT Flexible Loan Fund

NPT Flexible Loan Fund

The NPT Flexible Loan Fund assists businesses currently located or intending to locate within the County Borough of Neath Port Talbot. Support covers individuals setting up a new business or an existing business with up to 250 employees investing in viable projects that create, maintain or safeguard jobs.

The amount of loan available ranges between £1,000 and £10,000, dependant on the value of the project, although 50% of project costs must be met by the applicant and/or private sector funding.

With favourable interest rates, loans to date have been mainly used towards capital expenditure. However, marketing activity, research and development and training has been supported.

To help bring about improvements in the local economy, further changes to the criteria have been made to support the following key areas:

  • Loans of up to £5,000 available to support start-up businesses with growth potential.
  • Funding to help businesses increase capacity to meet demand, enter new markets, diversify products and services and provide training to apprentices and trainees.
  • Shorter-term funding to support working capital requirements of businesses facing problems in obtaining bank funding.
  • Support for new businesses to set up book-keeping systems.
