The Recovery Loan Scheme (RLS) Invoice Finance Facility is a Government backed initiative designed to enable our clients’ businesses to survive, recover and grow.

The Recovery Loan Scheme (“RLS”) will close on 30th June 2024.

To benefit from the scheme, you must have made a successful application for a RLS Loan and have also received a Facility Offer Letter from HSBC UK Bank plc on or before this date. Applications received after 3rd June 2024 will be processed on a reasonable endeavours basis. Due to the time taken to assess, approve applications and to then issue a Facility Offer Letter, we cannot guarantee that applications received (and subsequently approved) by HSBC UK Bank plc after 3rd June 2024 will receive a Facility Offer Letter before the RLS closure date.

Should we be unable to issue a Facility Offer Letter prior to the RLS closure date, your case will be assessed for alternative HSBC lending products.

Key benefits

Enhanced levels of invoice finance funding, with prepayment of up to 100% of invoice values notified to us.

When you draw funding from an RLS Invoice Finance Facility, the discounting charges you pay take account of the effect of the Government guarantee.

Facility may be used where we would not have been prepared to offer an Invoice Finance facility for the same amount on similar terms, or we would only have been able to offer it at a higher price.

The new iteration of the RLS Invoice Finance Facility runs for a fixed term of 36 months. After 26 months we’ll review the facility with you and agree how this will change over the remainder of its term.

Funding to support your business to survive, recover and grow.

Businesses that have received support under the previous Government COVID19 guaranteed loan schemes are still eligible to access finance under this scheme, subject to eligibility and limitations.
