The Recovery Loan Scheme (RLS) is the new scheme announced by the Government as of 3 March 2021. This scheme will not be available before 6 April 2021.

BBLS Pay As You Grow
Options for customers with an existing Bounce Back Loan
Pay interest only for six months (available up to three times during the term of your Bounce Back Loan). The total you owe would go up. This is because your interest costs increase as a larger amount of your loan is outstanding for longer.
Take a payment holiday for six months (available once during the term of your Bounce Back Loan). Interest on your borrowing will still accrue during a payment holiday period. The total you owe would go up. This is because your interest costs increase as interest accrues during the payment holiday and a larger amount of your loan is outstanding for longer.
Extend the term of your BBL from 6 years to 10 years. The total you owe would go up. This is because a larger amount of your loan is outstanding for longer.

If you are worried about a financial impact on your business, please get in touch
We have a range of options in place that could help, depending on your circumstances, including:
Overdrafts (subject to status) - an overdraft could help you manage your cashflow.
Term Loans (subject to status) - If you would like to apply for a loan, we will need you to provide more information. We can offer repayment holidays for new loans. Just remember if you take a repayment holiday you will pay more interest overall. If you are worried about meeting payments on an existing loan, please get in touch.
We can waive our standard arrangement fee on overdrafts, term loans and any credit limit increases or renewals if your business is impacted by Coronavirus.
If you are in financial difficulty, we can offer bespoke support in helping you manage your debt.
The government has announced a range of measures to help support businesses through this period.

Face coverings in our branches.
We’re following the latest government rules and we ask that you please wear a face covering in our branches*. We appreciate there will be circumstances when this isn’t possible, and we’ll be mindful of when this happens. For example, you may not be able to wear a face covering due to a physical or mental illness, impairment or disability. Similarly, if you need one of our Partners to temporarily remove their face covering to help you communicate with them, we can do so. We may also ask you to temporarily remove your face covering for ID purposes. We’re following government guidance in our branches. This may mean you need to queue outside the branch to make sure these rules are maintained for everyone’s wellbeing. Once inside, you’re required by law* to wear a face covering, unless you’re exempt.
* In our branches in England we ask that you consider wearing a face covering for your visit, as this does protect others, who may be feeling vulnerable. Thank you for remaining considerate of others and keeping yourself safe at this time.
