COVID-19 business loan eligibility check

The Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS) came to an end on Wednesday, 31st March 2021. This scheme has been succeeded by the Recovery Loan Scheme (RLS) eligibility criteria.

To reflect these changes, any calls to the covid-19 endpoint will return FAIL for CBILS and CLBILS eligibility. There is a new RLS key which will return WARN or FAIL depending on the updated criteria. Please see for more details.

The COVID-19 bundle will/may only be available for the duration of appropriate UK Government schemes. API clients must take reasonable steps to ensure their systems are resilient to this bundle being retired in the future. DueDil will provide 30 days notice when the time to retire eventually comes.

Perform a Recovery Loan Scheme eligibility check for a given UK company, using company ID.
