On 2 July 2009, the Finance Leasing Association (FLA) published a new version of its Business Finance Code. FLA members must comply with the Code and this new version sets out the standards that FLA members must meet when providing asset finance to businesses and the public sector.

The new version of the Code is substantially shorter than the previous version, published in May 2006. Furthermore, the new Code sets out the key commitments of FLA members in more general terms than the 2006 version, which provided substantial detail on members' sector specific commitments.
