Motor finance agreements and coronavirus: updated temporary guidance for firms

This draft guidance applies in the exceptional circumstances arising out of the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic and its impact on the financial situation of motor finance customers.

On 19 November, we published updated guidance for firms on Motor finance agreements and coronavirus related to the provision of payment deferrals, which replaces this with effect from 25 November 2020.


Read Motor finance and coronavirus: proposed update to temporary guidance for firms

On 24 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.

Today we have announced proposals which would provide continued support for users of motor finance products.

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

How to respond

We would welcome comments from stakeholders on this draft guidance by 5pm on Monday 6 July.
