Since the COVID 19 outbreak Government funding and support has been hugely helpful to many business owners.

With the closing of the CIBLs (Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme) and BBLs (Bounce Back Loan Scheme) funding, the Government have introduced a new funding scheme, known as The Recovery Loan Scheme.

The scheme is aimed at helping businesses to recover from the COVID 19 pandemic and the transitional period we currently find ourselves in.


A few key points:

  • Government guarantees 80% of the loan.  NB as the borrower you will always be 100% liable for the debt.
  • Scheme is open until 31/12/21
  • You are eligible if your business:
    • Trades in the UK
    • Would be viable had it not been for the pandemic
    • Has been adversely affected by COVID 19
    • Is not within insolvency proceedings
  • The funding is in two parts either):
    • Loans or overdrafts between £25,001 and £10 million per business
    • Invoice or asset finance between £1,000 and £10 million per business
  • No personal guarantees on funding to £250,000
  • The maximum length of funding is either:
    • Overdrafts and invoice financing up to 3 years
    • Loans and asset financing up to 6 years
