August 2018 - PIF has prepared its response to the Public Consultation on Gift Voucher Fees and Expiry Dates initiated by the Department of Business, Innovation and Enterprise in July 2018.
PIF welcomes any moves by legislators that strengthen consumer confidence in prepaid products. However, PIF is concerned that the Proposed Bill will have unintended consequences for the regulated prepaid sector including gift cards. There is a risk that it could cause conflict with existing regulations that gift card and voucher issuers are already subject to.
