Business Loan Protection Plans
Helps pay off an outstanding overdraft, loan or commercial mortgage in the event of death or critical illness.
Does your business have outstanding
debts or loans?
Who is the guarantor for each loan?
What happens if they die or become critically ill?
How would you fund that repayment?
To manage this risk, we can help to set up a Business Loan Protection Plan.
How it works:
- For limited companies & limited liability partnerships:
- A Life Cover policy or Life & Critical Illness Cover policy is set up.
- When a claim is made, a cash sum would be paid directly to your business.
- Your business can then use these funds to reduce or clear the company's outstanding loans or debts.
- For partnerships:
- Any cover policies that are set up would be placed in trust for the partners of the business.
