UK Coronavirus Large Business Interruption Loan Scheme
CLBILS provides financial support to mid-sized and larger UK businesses that are losing revenue and seeing their cashflow disrupted as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak.
Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) is accredited to lend under the Coronavirus Large Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CLBILS).
We continue to support our clients through a number of our own initiatives, as well as our involvement in government backed programmes like CLBILS and CBILS.
We understand how critical it is for many innovation businesses to get access to working capital during these challenging times and we’re committed to supporting as many of our clients as possible. At this time, we’re accepting CBILS applications from our existing SVB clients.
The Coronavirus Large Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CLBILS) is part of a wider package of government support for UK businesses and employees. It provides financial support to mid-sized and larger UK businesses with a group turnover of more than £45m (the upper limit for the existing smaller-business focused CBILS) that are suffering disruption to their cashflow due to lost or deferred revenues during the Covid-19 outbreak.
The Coronavirus Large Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CLBILS) is managed by the British Business Bank on behalf of, and with the financial backing of the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). British Business Bank plc is wholly owned by HM Government and is not authorised or regulated by the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) or the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). Full details on CLBILS and the list of participating CLBILS lenders can be found on the British Business Bank website at: www.british-business-bank.co.uk/CLBILS.
Eligible businesses can borrow from SVB up to £50 million in term loans over a maximum of three years.
It’s important to note that loan approval is not guaranteed or automatic but we’re committed to supporting as many of our clients as we can. You’ll need to provide detailed information to determine your eligibility. We’ll then carry out a full review and credit checks.
If you’re a client of SVB and interested in checking your eligibility, please contact your Relationship Manager or call our UK Client Services team on 0800 023 1441 or +44 207 367 7881 from outside the UK.
The government will guarantee loans under the CLBILS programme but the guarantee applies to the lender and not to borrowers, so you’ll be responsible for repaying 100% of the loan.
Click here if your group turnover is less than £45 million as you may be eligible for CBILS.
Lending for the Coronavirus Large Business Interruption Loan Scheme is subject to a satisfactory credit assessment and we will need your permission to carry out a credit check on you and your business. You should not apply for an amount that you cannot comfortably afford to repay now and in the future to avoid the possibility of legal action.
