What is the Recovery Loan Scheme (RLS)?

Launched on 6 April 2021, the Recovery Loan Scheme (RLS) helps UK businesses access finance as they recover from the affects of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The scheme can help you if your business has been affected by coronavirus and you have a legitimate business need for the finance, such as boosting cash flow, increasing investment, and growing your business.

If you have already taken out a Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS), Coronavirus Large Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CLBILS) or Bounce Back Loan Scheme (BBLS) facility you are able to access the Recovery Loan Scheme.
