A Business Plan and Cash Flow Forecast assessed by your assigned NEA mentor from the NEA scheme do not mean you will automatically receive a loan. You may also be asked to provide additional information to enable us to fully assess your application. In all cases, our decision will be based on our assessment of your ability to repay and not on the contents of your credit report.
