Export Development Guarantee
Access trade finance facilities to invest in exporting.
How it works
We provide a guarantee to your lender in support of trade finance facilities to unlock working capital to invest in exporting. Pay labour costs, invest in product development or bid for larger contracts with the security of working capital to support your exporting needs. The Export Development Guarantee can be used for companies transitioning away from fossil fuel sectors to clean energy sectors.
Companies that are not yet exporting from the UK, but intend to start, can also access the scheme.
The Export Development Guarantee can support facilities over £25 million. For smaller facilities, the General Export Facility may be more suitable.
You must be able to show that either:
- in any one of the last three financial years, at least 20% of your annual turnover has been made up of export sales
- in each of the last three financial years, at least 5% of your annual turnover has been made up of export sales
- you have a business plan demonstrating how you plan to export 10% of your turnover from the UK
