Bounce Back Loans - How they work

How was a Bounce Back Loan different from a Business Interruption Loan?

The Bounce Back Loan Scheme (BBLS) was separate from, but similar to, the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS). Both loan schemes lent money to businesses via lenders accredited by the British Business Bank. 

Small businesses could be eligible for both schemes, but the Bounce Back Loan Scheme aimed to help small businesses borrow smaller amounts more quickly, and with more generous terms.
