Legal Facts

Legal information about cashless trading

When did cashless trading coming into effect? Cashless trading came into force in December 2012, as part of the updated Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishing of Offenders Act 2012. This Act banned the use of cash in scrap metal trading in England and Wales, making it an offense to pay in cash.

Itinerant Collectors are only exempt if they have been granted an order under section 3.1 of the Scrap Metals Dealers Act by the local Police Chief or Local Authority, otherwise they are banned from using cash also.

Vehicle dismantlers buying end-of-life vehicles (ELVs or scrap cars) for parts brokerage are still able to pay in cash.

The scheme was developed in partnership with the British Metals Recycling Association (BMRA), the Home Office, the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) and Durham, Northumbria and Cleveland Police.

The New Scrap Metal Dealers Act

The updated Scrap Metal Dealers Act (SMDA) came into effect in Autumn, 2013, from this date vehicle dismantlers and itinerant collectors and will all be subject to the ban on cash. The new SMDA also makes it a necessity for identification, at point of sale and its a legal condition.
