Payday lender Wonga is no longer accepting new loan applications as it faces the brink of collapsing.
The company said in a statement on its website that it was continuing to "assess its options" and existing customers could still use their services to manage their loans.
It follows a surge in compensation claims against the firm amid a government clampdown on payday lenders.
Wonga has previously said it will make a decision about its future within weeks.
