Do you accept credit cards in your business?  Are you planning to?  Do you know the new liability rules in effect 1 October?


An important shift is occurring with card payment technology that might impact your business? To reduce fraud, EMV (which stands for Europay, MasterCard and Visa) chips are becoming the standard for integrated circuit cards (IC cards or "chip cards"), IC card capable point-of-sale terminals, and automated teller machines.
