The Government publishes aggregate application and approval figures for the Coronavirus Large Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS), the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS), Bounce Back Loan Scheme (BBLS) and Future Fund but does not hold specific information relating to individual companies who have accessed these schemes. HMRC publishes weekly management information on the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) and monthly management information on VAT deferrals. On 11 June HMRC published the Official Statistics for the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme which included a breakdown of recipients by sector, but not individual companies. Therefore the Government does not collect data on the information requested.

Regarding the Future Fund, it is an investor-led scheme with clear and published eligibility criteria. The scheme is being delivered by the British Business Bank and the Government is unable to comment on individual applications.
