Your Suggestion / Comment

With people not carrying cash as much as they use to, is it possible to set up a system so that we are able to tip staff using our card?

I understand the challenges in this but this shouldn’t prevent us from finding a way to reward staff.

In my experience they do an excellent job.  Other companies have over come this.

Thank you for your consideration.

Thanks for your note and suggestion, which I’m sure we would all agree with.

I know that any tips on credit cards will go through our ‘accounts’ and are then taxed.  I have seen separate ‘tips’ contact devices, that may avoid this so we will look into this and see if this is viable.

Hopefully we can find a way of rewarding our hard working staff – as you say, they deserve it.
