COVID-19: BANKS COMMITTED TO SUPPORT BUSINESSES AND HOUSEHOLDS

[THIS PAGE WAS LAST UPDATED ON 5  April 2020]

EBF banks remain committed to help the European economy navigate through the temporary difficulties posed by the global COVID-19 pandemic. To be truly effective, this endeavour requires close and intense coordination between public authorities and banks. Actions to encourage liquidity and to support bank capital need to be followed up quickly by fiscal actions in all countries affected. The EBF believes hat solidarity among EU member states is essential for an effective mitigation of the economic impact.

This web page brings together official institutional announcements and shares links to actions announced by national banking associations that are a member of the European Banking Federation.

Any business in need of support is advised to contact their bank directly and to discuss available options. If they have not already done so they should also reach out to the tax authorities in their country.
