UK Export Finance

Whether you are exporting, importing or investing overseas there are some financial decisions you need to make.

Crossing borders increases risks, therefore the right processes need to be put in place to ensure that time spent chasing debtors, applying for finance or dealing with the fluctuations in exchange rates can be spent elsewhere.

There are several financial services available that can enable you to eliminate the risks associated with working overseas and accessing finance when trading internationally, including:

Letters of Credit Guarantee Scheme

Export Insurance Policy (EXIP)

Direct Lending Facility

Buyer and Supplier Credit Financing Facility

Bond Support Scheme

Export Working Capital Scheme
