Support for larger firms through the COVID-19 Corporate Financing Facility

Under the new Covid-19 Corporate Financing Facility, the Bank of England will buy short term debt from larger companies.

This will support your company if it has been affected by a short-term funding squeeze, and allow you to finance your short-term liabilities.

It will also support corporate finance markets overall and ease the supply of credit to all firms.

All non-financial companies that meet the criteria set out on the Bank of England’s website are eligible.


How to access the scheme

The scheme is now available for applications.

More information is available from the Bank of England.
