Covid 19 Support

At the Directors Helpline we understand that during the pandemic you may need a different solution to give your business the fighting chance it deserves.

We can help our customers with various solutions. We are able to put you in contact with fully authorised lenders and brokers to discuss your options such as CBILS. This scheme provides lenders with a government-backed guarantee to facilitate lending during a time when the borrower may not have passed ‘normal’ lending criteria thresholds.Remember – we are here to help regardless of your situation.


What Is CBILS?

The Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS) provides financial support to smaller businesses (SMEs) across the UK that are losing revenue, and seeing their cashflow disrupted, because of the COVID-19 outbreak. The scheme is a part of a wider package of government support for UK businesses and employees. Read more at the Government’s Business Support website. CBILS has been significantly expanded along with changes to the scheme’s features and eligibility criteria. The changes mean even more smaller businesses across the UK impacted by the coronavirus crisis can access the funding they need. Importantly, access to the scheme has been opened to those smaller businesses that would have previously met the requirements for a commercial facility but would not have been eligible for CBILS. Insufficient security is no longer a condition to access the scheme. This significantly increases the number of businesses eligible for the scheme. Please note that as of 2 November, the Government has announced that the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS) will be extended until 31 January 2021.

The Directors' Helpline operates independently and with no obligation.

It’s always worth speaking to us and hearing what we have to say. You will always be guided by a director and we are on hand at any time, 7 days a week. Often directors find our advice far more reasonable, practical and effective than maybe some of the more traditional routes in the past.

Independent and in your corner

Without guidance, directors can be pressured unfairly into insolvency. Unlike insolvency practitioners, The Directors helpline will always represent you and your company, not your creditors.

We assess all the ways forward

We'll explain your company debt liabilities, accountancy solutions and restructuring options but we know your business is different to every other business. So, together, we decide how to proceed in a manner you're comfortable with.


Company Recovery experts

It's our aim to get you and your company the best possible outcome during an uncertain time. The Directors Helpline put 100% in helping you and your company.
