In order to make your life a little easier, we’ve compiled a range of useful resources that you can download, complete and submit with your application. These are detailed below in alphabetical order. Please note that some of the links take you to the latest templates on the Start Up Loan Website.
You do not have to use all of these templates if you don’t want to – for example, you may prefer to build your business plan via Outset Online, or using another template of your own making. However, we do recommend reviewing all of these documents prior to submitting your application so you get a sense of the level of detail we expect.

Click on the links below to download each document:
