Banknote Checking Scheme News – June 2021

Dear Strategic Partner,
Our Banknote Checking Scheme Newsletter provides you with news and updates about banknotes and initiatives to tackle counterfeit currency.
This newsletter shares an update about how to identify counterfeit polymer notes. We have seen a very limited number of attempts to forge the polymer £10 and £20 notes. Importantly, these fake polymer notes can easily be identified by the two key security features highlighted in our training materials.
We know that many Scheme supporters will have re-opened premises over the last few weeks and that there’s an incredible amount of work involved. Part of that might involve refreshing awareness on how to check banknotes, including for the new polymer £50 that will be issued on 23 June 2021.

BRC Crime Survey 2021

The British Retail Consortium (BRC) has today published its 2021 Retail Crime Survey, which highlights the scale of violence and abuse faced by retail staff. The survey shows there were 455 incidents of violence or abuse each day in 2019/20, up 7% from 2018/19. The findings also show that the total cost to retailers of crime and crime prevention was £2.5 billion, an increase of 14% on the previous year (£2.2 billion).
