    A company can't make profit while providing service "inside IR35", it's impossible.

It's essentially a £25K grant so long as you have no plans to use the company again
    I would be weary of doing this. How would you explain it as anything other than attempting to extract the loan for personal use which is prohibited.

    What legitimate reason would a business have for issuing such a large bonus to an employee when they have lost their revenue stream. Maybe you can come up with some creative rationale or just hope it never get queried.

    Option 2 seems to be preferred approach

    which may be true but is entirely irrelevant to the question or the discussion.

    Aren't they funds for the loans the Gov't owned British Business Bank Plc? Or is it just they who guarantee any loans issued under the Bounce back scheme?

    Either way, I doubt any banks would have problems getting seed funds / source funds as the risk is minimal, being effectively insured by the gov't.

    In my opinion, for short term personal funding(which is pretty much the only reason a LtdCo contractor would use the BBL) is that a director's loan is the most cost-effective way of getting the money out.

    Paying it out as a salary means a nasty bit of tax, all for some short term financing. Dividends obviously incur less tax but you still are still possibly paying thousands of tax just to have some cash in your pocket now that you need to pay back in the future.

    Not sure if I'm missing something here or if there is another better way of doing it?

    You personally owe the company money, so not as easy to walk away from the company and its debt.
