28 May 2020

On 26 May 2020, the British Business Bank (BBB) issued details of revisions to the existing Coronavirus Large Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CLBILS) aimed at providing COVID-19 financial support to UK mid-cap and larger enterprises with a turnover of over £45 million, which will see the maximum amount that businesses can borrow under the scheme increase from £50 million to £200 million.
