About the CBILS scheme
The Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS) is managed by the British Business Bank on behalf of, and with the financial backing of, the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.
The scheme provides lenders with a government-backed guarantee, potentially enabling a ‘no’ credit decision from a lender to become a ‘yes’. SMEs from all sectors can apply for the full amount of the facility.
Still unsure whether CBILS is right for your business? The British Business Bank and The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) have created new content to help businesses that are facing financial and operational challenges as a result of the coronavirus outbreak.
