Belgium also stops with 1 and 2 eurocents
brussels (anp) - The use of 1 and 2 euro cent coins is also coming to an end in Belgium. Cash payments at the cash register must be completed on December 1st next year, the government decided on Friday.
Retailers are allowed to round amounts since 2014, but make little use of that possibility. Many companies and consumers experience this as disruptive, motivates the Deputy Prime Minister Kris Peeters. Because the coins are often potted than used, a scarcity even arose a few months ago.
