The Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS)
ART Business Loans is an accredited partner of the scheme
This is a new scheme that supports smaller businesses across the UK who are experiencing lost or deferred revenues, leading to disruptions to their cashflow.
You must be a UK-based SME with an annual turnover of up to £45 million per year and your business must generate more than 50% of its turnover from trading activity. Your application must be for business purposes to support primarily trading in the UK.
The business must have a borrowing proposal which were it not for COVID-19 would be considered viable by the lender, and for which the lender believes the provision of finance will enable the businesses to trade out of any short to medium term difficulty.
Please note our loan support is only available across the West Midlands, Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Worcestershire and Warwickshire.
