    They could both be correct, but they mean different things. The first means that Peter refused to pay somebody and the second that Peter refused a payment from somebody.

    Re: which one is correct?

    Note that it's customary to write €200.

    If the euro sign is not available on your keyboard, write 200 euros, just like you would write $200 or 200 dollars.

    Capitals are unnecessary.
