Accountancy Europe calls on its members, 50 professional bodies in 35 countries, to respond to the European Commission's call to assess the feasibility of a creditworthiness scheme. The European Commission recently launched a consultation session on this topic, in which relevant stakeholders, such as banks, financing platforms, SMEs, national and European institutions and supervisory authorities, are invited to submit their contributions, up to 30 April this year, the deadline for providing feedback. According to Accountancy Europe, the organization has appealed since 2017 for such a scheme, which is even more relevant in the post-COVID economy. At the same time, Accountancy Europe recommends that the Commission include a general mediation framework in a future scheme. Accountants play a key role in helping SMEs access finance. Therefore, they will make a significant contribution to ensuring that the pan-European scheme achieves its goals in helping SMEs, the organization's representatives point out.
