Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme

A temporary Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme, delivered by the British Business Banklaunches the week 23 March to support businesses to access bank lending and overdrafts.

Government will provide lenders with a guarantee of 80% on each loan (subject to a per-lender cap on claims) to give lenders further confidence in continuing to provide finance to SMEs. The government will not charge businesses or banks for this guarantee, and the Scheme will support loans of up to £5 million in value.

Businesses can access the first 6 months of that finance interest free, as government will cover the first 6 months of interest payments.
