Customers
Since the beginning of lockdown, we have looked to provide our Asset Finance customers affected by the Coronavirus pandemic with a simple and straightforward approach to offering payment deferrals.

We are currently experiencing higher than normal calls due to this, so we have launched our Payment Deferral Request Form where customers that are still impacted by the pandemic can request a change to their payment schedule.

 

If you are not financially impacted at this time and can continue to make payments, then we encourage you to do so. If this changes at any time, please get back in touch with our collections team on 0118 055 6675.
