Next week, Chancellor Rishi Sunak will reveal a new government backed business loan. This will replace the three current coronavirus schemes, including the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS).

With this in mind, PMD urges all SME business owners that have had an effect from the Covid-19 pandemic to act now. Make sure you benefit from CBILS before its final deadline on 31st March 2021.
