Credit Guarantee Scheme announced by the Government

The Government today published The Credit Guarantee Bill 2012 and also the appointment of an operator for the Temporary Partial Credit Guarantee Scheme.

This is positive news for SMEs who are struggling to get finance form banks.

The Scheme will facilitate up to €150 million of additional lending per annum to eligible

It is intended to provide much-needed credit to job-creating SMEs who currently struggle to get finance from the banks and to address market failure affecting commercially viable businesses in two specific situations – namely, where businesses have insufficient collateral, and where businesses operate in sectors with which the banks are not familiar – and provide a 75% State guarantee to banks against losses on qualifying loans to
firms with growth and job creation potential.  

The principle measures in the Bill include:

  • Empowering the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, to give a 75% loan guarantee
  • Procedures for designating a lending institution as a participating lending institution
  • Provision for the payment of a 2% premium charge to the Minister by participating SME borrowers,
  • The setting of eligibility criteria for borrowers, in line with the European Commission definition of an
    SME. A qualifying enterprise must not employ more than 250 persons.
  • Provision for review of the scheme at any time. The Government have agreed to review the Scheme after one year of operation.
  • Assigning a contractor to oversee the operation of the Scheme.

Minister Bruton also announced that he has awarded a contract for the practical
oversight, management and operation of the Guarantee Scheme to Maynooth-based
company Capita Asset Services following a competitive tendering process.

Further information on the scheme is available on:
