GoCashless is a not-for-profit organisation whose sole purpose is to promote the end of cash in the UK by December 31st 2020.
- Cash is the currency of drug dealers ,criminals, terrorists and money launderers
- Cash encourages the Black Economy ( for which honest people pay )
- Cash encourages Income tax and VAT fraud
- Cash can be counterfeited
- Cash is a nuisance as we have to plan a journey / detour to obtain it
- Cash is dirty and tainted
Cash is no longer needed as many new traceable payment methods exist.
Such is the sheer scale of unpaid tax due to the illicit use of cash, that in a cashless society with dramatically more people paying tax, we could all then pay less
No legislation is required to end the issue and use of cash - just the willing cooperation of stakeholders.
The UK Cashless Society has already begun. Find out more at www.gocashless.org.uk, join the campaign and donate to the campaign.
