Enquire herelloyds@hta.org.ukhta.org.uk/fostering-trade/card-processing.htmlFollowing our decision to provide extended support for our customers by waiving a number of fees from 1st April to 31st October 2020, and with the continued uncertainty, we have decided to continue to waive some of those fees until 31st December 2020.
