The first publication on 4 June 2020 will show lending data only.

Term Funding Scheme
Current loans made through the Term Funding Scheme
We publish quarterly data with a one month lag, showing for each group participating in the TFS, the amount borrowed from the scheme. This also includes net quarterly flows of lending to UK households and firms, covering the scheme’s drawdown period, which ended in February 2018. The publication dates are now aligned with the publication dates for the TFSME, which are set out in the section above.
In line with the TFS Operating Procedures, Participants were required to audit their lending data following the closure of the drawdown window. These audits have led to some data revisions. Lending data and Borrowing Allowance figures are now considered to be final. No firms were asked to repay their drawings as a result of the data revisions.
Note that data may not sum to the total due to rounding. Data may be subject to revisions.
Funding for Lending Scheme
We publish quarterly data showing, for each group participating in the extension to the FLS, the amount borrowed from us and the net quarterly flows of lending, broken down by sector.
Note that data may not sum to the total due to rounding. Data may be subject to revisions. With the exception of any new groups that join the scheme, participants do not report data on lending beyond end-2015. Hence the lending data (and associated borrowing allowance data) will only change as a result of revisions to previous data, or to reflect new participants that have joined the scheme.
