There has been a certain amount of media interest about the charges raised for paying with a credit card. This has led us to renegotiate our charges levied against us by the Companies concerned and we are pleased to say that we have now reduced rates charged.

With immediate effect we would like to pass on these reduced charges to our clients.

As of last Friday, 26th. February 2016, our charges are:

All Credit Cards with exception of American Express (Visa, Mastercard etc) – 01.20%

American Express and Business Cards – 02.00%

We all look forward to the day when a charge for credit cards move to just a transactional charge and this is the first step towards this.
