What is Covid-19 Business Interruption Loan (CBILS)?

The UK Government has introduced a Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan scheme, (CBILS) to assist small and medium sized business (SEM’s) throughout this pandemic. Many businesses have been struck hard by this virus and this scheme allows your business to get hold of vital working capital. So apply now and bridge your way into the new year, and a new start.

The scheme will be delivered through commercial lenders, with 80% of the loan backed by the government-owned British Business Bank (subject to pre-lender cap on claims). The remaining 20% is provided by the lender.

The scheme applies to those UK-based businesses with an annual turnover of less than £45 million. You can secure loans up to the value of £5 million over a maximum 6-year repayment term. There are also no early settlement fees incase you bounce back quicker than you initially expected.
