What is the Recovery Loan Scheme (RLS)?

The Recovery Loan Scheme (RLS) was launched by the UK Government on 6th April 2021 and helps businesses access loans and other kinds of finance so they can recover after the COVID-19 pandemic and transition period. Applications for the scheme are open until 30th June 2022, subject to review.

A Government recovery loan could help you in ways such as accessing cash flow, purchasing new equipment, invest in marketing and ultimately grow your business. This scheme replaces the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS) and the Bounce Back Loan Scheme (BBLS). If you have previously accessed these schemes, you may still be eligible for the RLS.

As this is a government backed loan, the government will guarantee 70% of the finance to the lender, however as the borrower you are always 100% liable for the debt.

How much can you borrow on the Recovery Loan Scheme?

The Recovery Loan Scheme comes in four different forms: term loans, overdrafts, invoice, and asset finance. Depending on which type of facility you wish to access, there are different terms to the agreement. The terms will also change depending on which finance provider you use. If you are unsure of which provider to use, please get in touch and we can help you explore your options.

You could borrow:

  • Term loans and overdrafts: between £25,001 and £10 million per business.
  • Invoice or asset finance: between £1,000 and £10 million per business.

How long is the loan for?

The maximum length of the facility also depends on the type of finance you apply for:

  • Up to 6 years for loans and asset finance facilities.
  • Up to 3 years for overdrafts and invoice finance facilities.

One of the great benefits of the RLS is that if you are borrowing less than £250,000 then a personal guarantee is not required.

Who is eligible for the Recovery Loan Scheme?

You can apply for a loan if your business:

  • Is trading in the UK
  • Would be viable were it not for the pandemic
  • Has been adversely impacted by the pandemic
  • Is not in collective insolvency proceedings (unless your business is in scope of the Northern Ireland Protocol in which case different eligibility rules may apply).

Businesses from any sector can apply except for:

  • Banks, building societies, insurers, and reinsurers (but not insurance brokers)
  • Public-sector bodies
  • State-funded primary and secondary schools
