Government-backed loans are helping many businesses during this crisis. And getting access to cash during these exceptional times may be crucial. However, the process isn’t easy for those unfamiliar with making these applications – and it can be difficult to get it right first time.

At Capex Finance, we are here to help increase your chances of success.

A survey conducted by the National Association of Commercial Finance Brokers has revealed that a UK SME is 33% more likely to successfully receive critical funding when applying via an intermediary than approaching a lender directly.

What is CBILS

In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, the UK government has set out various new financial measures to support businesses, including a temporary Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme, known as CBILS.

This is available to UK businesses so they can access invoice finance, term loans, asset finance, and overdrafts through a panel of banks and lenders approved by the British Business Bank. The banks and approved lenders will be provided with a government-backed guarantee for 80% of the outstanding value.


Key Features

  • The first 12 months are interest free
  • Borrow from £50,001 to £5 million
  • Invoice finance, term loans, asset finance and overdrafts available
  • No early settlement fees
  • Terms from two to six years depending on funding type
  • No personal guarantees required for borrowing below £250,000
  • 80% of the debt is guaranteed by the government
