CBILS-backed Term Loans

One of the least complicated loan types, term loans are now a CBILS loan option, meaning they are backed by the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS). Providing between £50,001 to £250,000, a CBILS backed term loan is ideal for helping SMEs operate in light of Coronavirus implications. With nothing to pay until the 13th month of the loan term (and the first 12 months’ interest paid for by the UK Government), a term loan is ideal for those in need of quick and substantial support.

You’ll need to be eligible to apply and should expect interest rates based on your business and personal circumstances. Below, we’ll identify exactly what you need to apply and what you can expect in terms of support. If you’d rather speak directly to the team, use the form above and we’ll get in touch.

What is a Term Loan?

Term loans provide SMEs with finance that must be repaid over a certain period of time. They’re one of the least complicated business loans and require minimal consideration for the purpose of the loan. In the past, term loans were segmented into three top-level loan term types: short, medium and long-term. With the introduction of the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme, they’re now only available between 2 and 6 years, with interest rates between 1.8% and 11% APR based on business and personal credit.

What are the benefits of Term Loans?

The biggest advantage of a term loan is the provision of substantial financial support which can be paid for over a long period of time. This allows you to fund big operational purchases without losing out on your day-to-day operational finances. Some of the other benefits of term loans include:

Low Interest Rates:

With longer durations than most other types of business loan, interest rates are generally lower. Under the CBILS-backed scheme, they’re limited at 11% APR but can drop as low as 1.8%. This will be based on your business history and may include personal credit history for certain cases.

Streamlined Application Process:

As term loans are flexible in terms of their purpose, the application process is quick and to the point. Unlike business loans with specific purposes, you don’t need to prove eligibility to the same extent. As identified earlier, you’ll need to apply for finance within the term loans limit and provide some documentation which prove your business is viable for this support.

Structured repayments:

With a structured repayment plan, term loans are great for ensuring you aren’t hit with any unexpected fees or charges. Upon completion of your application, you’ll be shown set repayment dates and amounts, allowing you to budget and keep your business moving forward while you pay off your loan.
