This paper investigates the impacts of economic policy uncertainty (EPU) on firm-level financing with the fixed effect model, using quarterly panel data of the Shanghai and Shenzhen Stock Markets’ A shares from 2003 to 2017. The results areas follows: (1) EPU has an unfavorable influence on firm-level financing. (2) Increases in firm growth, firm size, ROA, and GDP growth and a decrease in Tobin’s q significantly boost firm-level financing. Policy makers should thus maintain a stable economic policy, so that firms can firmly anticipate any economic policy and solidify their financing plans. Firms should also timely adjust decisions and behaviors according to changes in economic policy.
