Morrisons has renewed its membership with BOSS and its Payment Watch scheme.

The supermarket group began working with the BOSS Payment Watch scheme in October 2014 with the scheme operating on several forecourts throughout the UK.

BOSS’s debt recovery scheme is a co-ordinated system for recovering financial losses incurred by ‘No Means of Payment’ incidents. Following a successful first year Morrisons is now expanding the scheme to include additional sites.

David Halsall, head of LP corporate protection at Morrisons, said: “BOSS Payment Watch has proved to be a cost effective solution to recover our debts and it has played a significant part in reducing our no means of payment losses. BOSS Payment Watch has also been a deterrent to drivers thinking of claiming to have no means of payment. If we do need to pursue a debt, the BOSS reporting process is simple and the level of recovery is excellent.”

Kevin Eastwood, executive director at BOSS, commented: “The continuing relationship with Morrisons demonstrates that BOSS Payment Watch is a powerful tool in the fight against forecourt crime. The scheme helps to protect fuel retailers’ financially and it has successfully assisted police in the identification and prosecution of numerous multiple offenders.”
