The Bounce Back Loan Scheme (BBLS), and the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS), are now becoming due and payable.

When they were introduced there was a huge uptake of circa £75billion taken from businesses to cover the then short gap that was envisaged being the period of the first lockdown came.

Covid-19 has now had its third lockdown and this extended period since the start of Covid-19 sees businesses in real difficulty. Whilst these loans were issued in the first instance as a safety net, over time they are now becoming a burdensome debt.

In our opinion, these were a great initiative undertaken by Rishi Sunak but they still need paying back and now is the time.

How Will The Lenders React?

It is unclear how the banks and the various peer-to-peer tech platforms will approach the recovery of these debts if the borrower be it a company or an individual is unable to meet the payments going forward.

The FT recently commented that a 42% failure rate is envisaged with the BBLS loan facility.

Banks have the backing and guarantee (to a degree) from the government in respect of these loans. However, the banks et al need to show that they have made their best efforts to recover before we believe they will then be compensated.

It would appear the banks are looking to deal with the issue of non-payments of BBLS and CBILS loans on an individual basis after at one point they discussed the creation of a debt chasing single entity.
