Barclays COVID Business Loan

Update from Barclays on their Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS)

The key features of the Barclays business loans are

·  Loans are available for £25,001 up to £5m.

·  £25,001 – £100,000 – Secured by short form guarantee

·  £100,001 – £250,000 – Secured by short form guarantee and debenture

· £250,001+ Personal guarantee, debenture and tangible security

·  Loan Tenor – 1 – 6 years

·  No arrangement fee

·  No interest payments for 12 months


Loans in the scheme are limited to a maximum of 25% of 2019 turnover or double the annual wage bill, whichever is greater. This is a rule of the scheme rather than a Barclays requirement.


Note: Not all businesses will qualify for the scheme as the business needs to demonstrate that the business is viable. However, Barclays will likely take a view that if you were a strong business in 2019 then you will be a strong business again.
