SHAPE PERSONNEL – GRIFFIN CAR SALES – ‘JPA DIRECT’

Griffin Car Sales are currently advertising a “JPA Direct” (repayments taken direct from salary via JPA) car loan (through Plane Savers Credit Union) to SP.
This matter has been flagged to MOD for their consideration, and direction, as there is concern that the branding is misleading and alludes to direct associations with JPA/DBS. This is not the case. Griffin Car Sales are using the Plane Savers Credit Union, one of the MOD CU scheme providers, to facilitate finance. The loan is repaid by SP through the Credit Union using the Payroll Giving facility. No new salary payments schemes have been introduced, this loan is utilising the provision put in place to facilitate the Credit Unions. Further direction will be issued in due course.
