What Is RLS

The Recovery Loan Scheme (RLS) was launched by the government on the 6th of April, to help support businesses to recover and grow following the pandemic. The loans range from £25,000 to £10 million and are open to all businesses with a turnover of less than £45 million. This money could be used to manage cash flow, investment, or growth for the business. However, the actual amount offered depends on the terms and conditions of the participating lender.

If your business was supported via the previous COVID-19 guaranteed loan schemes, or who have taken out a CBILS, CLBILS, or BBLS facility, you are still eligible to access RLS loans as long as you meet the below criteria:

  • Trading in the UK
  • Be viable were it not for the pandemic
  • Have been adversely impacted by the pandemic
  • Not be in collective insolvency proceedings

Businesses of any size and from any sector can apply except the below:

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