What is the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme?
Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS), delivered through British Business Bank accredited lenders and partners, is designed to support UK-based small businesses through the COVID-19 crisis.
Lending under CBILS is partially guaranteed by the government, which allows small business lenders, like Capital on Tap, to lend to businesses that might not have previously been eligible for a loan, due to the effect COVID-19 has had on their business.
In addition to the guarantee to the lender, the government will also pay any interest or fees charged in the first year, so small businesses can benefit from no upfront costs and lower initial repayments.
Key features of CBILS with Capital on Tap
Capital on Tap is accredited by the British Business Bank to lend from £50,001 up to £100,000 through our flexible revolving credit facility.
The APRs range from 9.9% to 14.9% and any interest charged in the first 12 months will be paid for by the government as a 'Business Interruption Payment'.
There is no personal guarantee as a security for overdrafts under CBILS. Your business still remains responsible for repaying 100% of the debt.
We've helped more than 100,000 businesses
That's over £1.5 billion lent to small businesses around the UK to help them reach their business goals.

Capital on Tap can offer revolving credit facility from £50,001 up to £100,000.
Please note: As with any other commercial transaction, the borrower is always responsible for repayment of the full value of any facility supported by CBILS.
Please note: The guarantee is to the lender, and not the small business.
Any queries from a business with an active or historic EFG facility, including guarantee fee collection or alterations to their repayment profile should raise them with their lender, and not with the British Business Bank.
The Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS) 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).
