Some businesses are thriving and some sadly are facing serious challenges.

BNP Paribas press release 2.4.20:

We have seen an understandable but significant increase in requests for payment reschedules. I’m writing to confirm the steps we are taking to help customers through this challenging time.

Customers have been advised to submit their requests for payment holidays to lines have been closed so we can focus on processing requests.

To speed up processing, we have now diverted additional staff to this activity and adjusted authority levels for our Customer Services teams so they may handle the bulk of the submissions, with only larger exposures having to be referred to Credit & Risk. These submissions will be processed and acknowledged back to the customer with a one way letter of amendment (no requirement for the customer to sign and return).

Payment holidays will be considered as primarily an extension to the existing term or by maintaining original term and spreading the skipped repayment months across the remaining period.

Our Account Managers will discuss with brokers, dealers & manufacturers where residual value buybacks or maintenance collection is included in a reschedule request.

Larger balance requests or those including residuals and maintenance are being handled by our Credit and Risk teams, the customer’s request will be considered and, if approved, we will immediately process the amendment and send a letter to the customer detailing the repayment changes that they will be asked to acknowledge.

We are committed to working with our customers and partners during this very challenging period and the steps outlined above should offer reassurance, during these uncertain times, about the processes we have in place to support payment reschedule requests.
