What is CBILS?

The Coronavirus Business Interruption Lending Scheme, or CBIL Scheme, is Government loan scheme to help UK SMEs impacted by coronavirus to access business finance.

The CBILS loan allows UK businesses to access financial support of £50,001 up to £5 million, if they have been negatively impacted by COVID-19. This facility is for businesses that have a turnover of less than £45 million. The loan is government-backed, so the lender is guaranteed 80% of the loan for losses incurred by default. The borrower remains 100% liable for the loan. Newable is an accredited CBILS lender, however it is not currently originating facilities and is instead supporting UK SMEs access the scheme via other lenders.

Key benefits:

  • Businesses can borrow up to 25% of annual turnover

  • No fees or interest costs in the first 12 months

  • There is no requirement for personal guarantees if the loan £250,000 or less

  • For loans above £250,000, the personal guarantee is capped at 20% of the loan amount

  • Businesses can receive multiple CBILS loans as long as the total borrowing is no more than 25% of annual turnover and does not exceed £5 million
