Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Schemes

These schemes provide lenders with a government backed guarantee on business finance products.

SMES’s can borrow up to £5m, including term loans, overdrafts, invoice finance and asset finance facilities. Read advice on applying for a Business Interruption Loan if you’re a small to medium sized business here.

Smaller businesses from all sectors can apply for the full amount of the facility and must be:

  • UK-based with a turnover of no more than £45m per year
  • Have a proposal which would be considered viable by the lender
