COVID-19: Corporate Financing Facility (CCFF)

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

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

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

The scheme is now available for applications and more information is available from the Bank of England.
