Get ready for a Recovery Loan

Get ready for a Recovery Loan

Good news for small businesses: the government’s new Recovery Loan Scheme will begin on 6 April 2021 – a replacement for Coronavirus Business Interruption and Bounce Back Loans.

We've applied to be accredited for the Recovery Loan Scheme. Here is what we know about these loans so far:

  • You can borrow from £25,001 to £10,000,000 over 6 years

  • There’s no limit based on your turnover (unlike CBILS)

  • You might be eligible if you already have a government-backed loan

We've been supporting over 50,000 small businesses with access to finance since 2012.

Will I be eligible for a Recovery Loan?

Here is what we know about the eligibility criteria for businesses so far:

  • need to be based in the UK
  • need to be viable (or would’ve been, if not for the pandemic)
  • have been impacted by coronavirus
  • are not in collective insolvency proceeding

This loan calculator is only an example, your actual rate for your business loan will vary based on your circumstances. Here’s another example: if you borrowed £10,000 for 12 months at 49% representative APR, with an interest rate of 40% p.a. (variable), then, all in all, the total amount you’d repay would be £12,294.
