The Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme [CBILS] provides financial support to smaller businesses [SMEs] across the UK that are losing revenue, and seeing their cash flow disrupted, as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak.
The scheme is part of a wider package of government support for the UK businesses and employees.
CBILS has been significantly expanded along with changes to the schemes features and eligibility criteria. The changes mean that even more smaller businesses across the UK impacted by the coronavirus crisis can access the funding they need.
