Overview

UK Export Finance aims to ensure that no viable UK export fails for lack of finance or insurance, while operating at no net cost to the taxpayer.

We are the UK’s export credit agency and a government department, working alongside the Department for International Trade as an integral part of its strategy and operations.

We work with 70 private credit insurers and lenders to help UK companies access export finance (the particular class of loans, insurance policies or bank guarantees that enable international trade to take place as easily and securely as possible). We exist to complement not compete with the private sector.

We help UK companies to:

  • Win export contracts by providing attractive financing terms to their buyers
  • Fulfill contracts by supporting working capital loans
  • Get paid by insuring against buyer default

We can support exports for any size of company and across all sectors, from capital goods to services and intangibles such as intellectual property.

How we work

Our export finance managers provide free and impartial consultations. They help UK companies to check they are getting the appropriate support and, if not, explore how to bridge any gaps.
