Dear Sirs

Important information about your business loan. We've completed a review of your business loan and need to amend your regular payments. This is to help you repay the loan in full within the agreed term. Your regular payment will be amended from £728.85 to £981.95. No other changes are being made to your loan. Why's this changing? There's often a number of reasons: Previous payment amounts may have been adjusted, meaning you're currently paying more or less than is required. You may have made overpayments, which have lowered the outstanding balance. You may have missed or made a partial payment, which means that the outstanding balance is higher. We haven't amended your regular payments following a previous change in the Bank of England base rate. Your variable rate business loan is linked to the Bank of England base rate, which means the interest you pay will change as the base rate changes. What you need to do. You don't need to do anything. We'll amend your payment amount from the next repayment date. We need to give ten working days' notice to amend Direct Debits. If your next payment date is within ten working days, it will be amended at the following repayment date. We're here to help. If you have any queries, please speak with your usual HSBC contact. Yours faithfully. Your Commercial Banking Team. We're open Monday to Friday, 8am to 8pm and Saturday, 8am to 2pm (subject to change over certain periods). Our up-to-date opening hours can be found at: If you're calling from outside the UK, please dial +44 1226 260 878.
