Consumer Finance

Welcome to the consumer finance pages

The FLA is the main trade association for the UK consumer credit and motor finance sectors and the largest organisation of its type in Europe.

In 2017, FLA members provided £96 billion to consumers, to support purchases ranging from cars to household goods, accounting for over a third of total new consumer credit written in the UK.

In this part of the website, members will be able to find out about the current issues affecting the industry and log in to the members’ room to access responses to consultation papers and additional briefing material.

Alternatively, if you are a visitor to the website looking for guidance on motor finance options, consumer rights or hardship problems, the FLA has a dedicated consumer information section packed with useful information and links to further sources of help.
