Funding Circle is accredited by the Government-owned British Business Bank to provide loans under the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS). .
Take your business forward with a CBILS loan
Get extra working capital, manage disruption or expand your business with a loan of £50,001 to £250,000 under the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS)
There’s nothing to pay for 12 months, giving you some breathing space. The Government will also pay the upfront fee and first year of interest, helping to reduce the overall cost.
Have a Bounce Back Loan (BBLS) already? You can still apply
Under scheme rules, you can’t hold a BBLS and a CBILS loan at the same time. However, if you have a Bounce Back Loan, you can still apply for a CBILS loan and, if your application is approved, you’ll then be asked to settle your BBLS loan.
Who can qualify for a CBILS loan?
At Funding Circle, we’ll look at whether we would approve your business for a loan were it not for the impact of coronavirus. That means even if you have been severely affected, you could still get funding.
- UK-based business that’s been adversely affected by coronavirus
- Turnover of over £200,000
- Minimum 3 years of trading history
- Over 50% of turnover from trading activity (e.g. not from investments)
- Loan is for business purposes
- Loan is primarily for trading in the UK
When taking out a CBILS loan, the business is liable for the full loan amount. If the business is unable to repay, the scheme provides a partial guarantee to the lender, not to the business. Read more information on CBILS loans from Funding Circle.
