The Bank of England will be issuing a new polymer £5 note in September 2016.

The design and security features will be unveiled on the 2nd of June. If your business handles cash, it's important that you and those working in your business understand how to recognise and authenticate the notes when they come into circulation in September. Training materials will be made available and will include a video on Youtube, a smartphone app, Flickr images of the new banknote along with posters and leaflets.
