Yesterday (24 September) the Chancellor of the Exchequer announced extensions to the government’s current three Coronavirus business interruption loan schemes.

The following schemes have been aligned and now all share an end date of 30 November:

Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS)

Coronavirus Large Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CLBILS)

Bounce Back Loan Scheme (BBLS)

Future Fund

As each scheme has been announced separately, they previously had different closing dates. Originally, they were all due to run for a period of six months at which time applications could be submitted.

The schemes were originally planned to end on the following dates:

30 September – CBILS and Future Fund

20 October – CLBILS

4 November – Bounce Back Loan Scheme
