WRITTEN QUESTION by Simon Busuttil (PPE‑DE) to the Commission

 Subject: Refusal of EUR 200 and EUR 500 banknotes
 Answer(s) 

It appears that a number of businesses and shop outlets within the Eurozone are refusing to accept EUR 200 and EUR 500 notes.

Is the Commission aware of this practice?

Since both the EUR 200 and EUR 500 notes are legal tender, how far would this practice be legal and acceptable?
