Using Northern Ireland/Scottish notes in England?

Why is there such a fuss?

Some places won't take it at all, most others there is the usual 'i need to ask the manager' and minion runs off for five minutes before coming back and taking the money while giving incredulous looks.

We have no problem accepting Bank of England notes.

Have you experienced this? Are you one of the people that won't accept these notes in your establishment?

    its because cashiers rarely get them so they dont know if its real or fake, its not hard to work ou.

    I do a lot of push ups and sit ups. And I drink plenty of milk.

    Because technically...its not legal....its cheaper for regional banks to print their own money than buy the notes from the ban of England, these notes are allowed to you under some techinical allowence, but legally if carried they arnt worth anything.

    THink it come under Common usage....meh..either way...they dont have to accet them, theirs no legal tender there.

    I've always found it worse the further south you go.

    I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the darkness at Tan Hauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time like tears in rain. Time to die

    No notes are legal tender in Scotland, not even Scotish ones.  Not that the term 'legal tender' has much meaning anymore.

    Only coins are legal tender in Scotland and NI.  BoE notes are legal tender in England and Wales.  The term Legal Tender has lost a bit of it's meaning since the end of the Gold Standard and it's a bit arcane these days.  Debt/credit cards, cheques etc are not legal tender either.

    Just because it's not legal tender doesn't mean you can't accept it either, it's been tested in court that you can pay with anything that is 'generally accepted as money'.

    Be interesting to see how this would all pan out if a dose of hyperinflation hit the UK.
