On 9 April 2020, we published guidance setting out our expectation that firms should provide, for a temporary period only, exceptional and immediate support to consumers facing payment difficulties due to circumstances arising out of coronavirus.

Following a short period for comments, we have finalised our revised guidance which will provide continued support for users of credit card products.

We are proposing to disapply some rules in order to give effect to this guidance.
