About the event

UK Export Finance provides finance and insurance to help UK exporters of all sizes and sectors sell overseas. In 2017/18, we helped nearly 200 companies sell to 75 overseas markets – 77% of them were SMEs.  UKEF’s support is also available to tier one suppliers to UK exporters, giving businesses within the UK supply chain the potential to access UKEF’s flexible finance. 

Complementing rather than competing with the private sector, UKEF can help to make exports happen which might otherwise not, helping UK exporters and their supply chains grow their business overseas through offering insurance policies to UK companies selling overseas, loans and guarantees to banks.


How can UK Export Finance help finance your international sales?
UKEF offer help through the Export Working Capital Scheme / Bond Support Scheme and Export Credit Insurance.


Export Working Capital Scheme / Bond Support Scheme
The Export Working Capital and Bond Support schemes are aimed at helping UK companies access working capital to fulfil a specific export contract or a supply contract to a UK-based exporter. UKEF can guarantee up to 80% of the value of a contract or bond, allowing companies to take on more business and win higher value contracts than they would have otherwise been able.


Export Credit Insurance
Export Credit Insurance can also be offered to protect against non-payment by the buyer. This may be a way to protect a payment when supplying a customer in a more challenging part of the world.
