COVID-19: BANKS COMMITTED TO SUPPORT BUSINESSES AND HOUSEHOLDS

[THIS PAGE WAS LAST UPDATED ON 19 May 2020]

The European banking sector is fully committed to helping the European economy navigate through the major but temporary difficulties posed by the global COVID-19 pandemic. This web page brings together actions by national banking associations that are a member of the EBF and official institutional announcements.

Any business in need of support is advised to directly contact their bank and to discuss available options. If they have not already done so they should also reach out to the tax authorities in their country. The EBF believes that solidarity among EU member states is essential for an effective mitigation of the economic impact.
