Finance and Leasing Association
UK european consumer centre - Delivered by the Trading Standards Institute. Information and support for consumers shopping across the EU.
The Finance & Leasing Association (FLA) is the UK’s leading trade association for the consumer credit, motor finance and asset finance sectors, and the largest organisation of its type in Europe.
Our members are banks, subsidiaries of banks and building societies, the finance arms of leading retailers and manufacturing companies and a range of independent firms.
The facilities our members provide account for a third of the UK’s unsecured lending and half of all car purchases. Options finance leasing, operating leasing, hire purchase, conditional sale, personal contract purchase plans, personal lease plans, secured and unsecured personal loans, credit cards and store card facilities.
The FLA’s understanding of industry issues means we can communicate on behalf of our members at the heart of government. Our dialogue with policy makers and the regulators helps to shape policy and regulation across the wide range of industry issues. We actively lobby decision-makers both at home and in Europe in order to create the right regulatory environment for businesses to thrive.
