The ABFA Standards Framework

NOTE: The ABFA Standards Framework continues in place post-1 July 2017 merge, now supported by UK Finance. It continues to cover all finance providers that were Members of the ABFA who have now become Members of UK Finance.

From 1 January 2018, the Framework will be called the Invoice Finance and Asset Based Lending Standards Framework. All the associated documents and information will reflect this and is now available on the UK Finance website here.

The Standards Framework sets and enforces the standards that clients of UK Finance Invoice Finance and Asset Based Lending Members can expect. These pages include information on the Framework, what it covers, how it works and how to make a complaint about an ABFA Member. The key components of the Framework are:

  • The Invoice Finance and Asset Based Lending Code
  • The Independent Complaints Process
  • The independent Professional Standards Council.
