Two weeks ago, it was announced that we were approved for accreditation by the British Business Bank to offer secured loans through the Government-backed Coronavirus Business Interruption Lending Scheme (CBILS). We understand this is a worrying and stressful time for businesses so we’re doing what we can to help.

Here’s what I said on the initial announcement and you can read our press release here.

We’re utilising the CBILS scheme to help smaller businesses access finance during this time. Accredited as a CBILS lender by the British Business Bank, the scheme enables us to provide facilities of up to £5m to you if your business has experienced lost or deferred revenues, leading to disruptions in cash flow.

A CBILS loan with Atom means:

  • New and existing customers can apply
  • Access to secured business loans from £100,000 to £5m (subject to assessment)
  • You may be able to refinance debt from another lender
  • Fee-free with capital and interest paid for the first year*
  • Repayment terms up to six years
  • No personal guarantee required for loans below £250k.

If you’re a UK-based business looking for support from Atom, you should contact one of one of the independent brokers approved on our panel to see if a CBILS secured loan is the right choice for you. You can also check out the CBILS page on our website full of info and resources.
