COVID-19 - business continuity - UK.

(CLBILS).

The CLBILS was designed to provide UK government guarantees of 80% to enable banks to make loans of up to £200m, offered to medium and large sized firms with a turnover of over £45m per annum that were impacted by COVID-19 and were unable to secure regular commercial financing.


To be eligible, a business must:

  1. Be UK-based in its business activity.
  2. Have an annual turnover over £45 million.
  3. Be unable to secure regular commercial financing.
  4. Have a borrowing proposal which the lender:
(a) would consider viable, were it not for the COVID-19 pandemic; and
(b) believes will enable the borrower to trade out of any short-term to medium-term difficulty.


For new borrowings from April 2021 onward, CLBILS is superseded by the Recovery Loan Scheme (RLS).
