Fight against the shadow economy

A number of countries have stepped up their fight against the shadow economy by taking effective policy measures to stimulate electronic payments. In partnership with governments, and as a technology company constantly investing in innovation, Mastercard is supportive of the following policy solutions:

  1. Electronic payment of wages/government transfers, pensions and social benefits to a bank account or a prepaid card
  2. Threshold of business-to-consumer (B2C) cash payments
  3. Cash register (“fiscalisation”)
  4. Point of sale (POS) terminals
  5. Incentives for consumers
  6. Incentives for merchants
