Triple Point has been approved for accreditation as a lender by the British Business Bank under the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS)

CBILS is designed to support the continued provision of finance to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the UK as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak. The scheme is managed by the British Business Bank (BBB) and delivered through more than 60 accredited lenders.

Triple Point’s initial focus will be providing support to clients with existing debt facilities with us who have been directly impacted by Covid-19. We are therefore currently accepting applications from existing borrowers only, but plan to extend CBILS lending to new borrowers in due course.
