PLC Professional Liquidity Scheme

What is PLC Professional Liquidity Scheme?

PLC Professional Liquidity Scheme (PLC Scheme) is a scheme aimed to assist the Institute’s Member Firms (MFs) to obtain advances for pre-determined staff costs, using the firm’s issued invoices. The PLC Scheme is a collaborative initiative between the Institute and Pembangunan Leasing Corporation (PLC), a subsidiary of Bank Pembangunan Malaysia Berhad.

What is the objective of this PLC Scheme?

The objective of the PLC Scheme is to assist MFs with managing partners in good standing, who face difficulties in collecting payments from their clients who suffered financially from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The PLC Scheme will assist MFs to fund salary expenses with advances obtained from unpaid invoices. The margin of advance from the invoice value will be determined from your clients’ credit scoring.
