What is the ENABLE Guarantee programme?

The ENABLE Guarantee programme is designed to encourage additional lending to smaller businesses. It is managed by the British Business Bank, the UK’s national economic development bank, which is wholly owned by HM Government.
The ENABLE Guarantee transaction between Barclays and the British Business Bank allows us to provide increased access to finance. As a result, we are able to provide a cashback of 0.25% of balance to finance to all eligible UK businesses who take up Asset Finance leases within a specified period.
