Entrepreneurs who fail to acquire online cash registers in time should avoid fines if they fulfil several conditions.

This stems from the amendment that the cabinet approved and the parliament will discuss in the short-tracked procedure, the TASR newswire reported.

The ministry proposed the amendment due to the situation that arose in relation to the implementation of eKasa. There were not enough providers of online cash registers, only 31 certified by the Financial Administration. The operators of companies found themselves in a situation where they could not fulfil the conditions as stipulated by law.

There are conditions

The ministry wants to protect entrepreneurs from fines for something they are not responsible for. Those who want to avoid the fine and legally use their old cash registers should fulfil several conditions.

Finance Minister Ladislav Kamenický explained fines will not apply to those who register with the Financial Administration by June 30 and can prove they ordered the certified eKasa and entered their takings in their old cash register.

“We have more than 77 percent users of the electronic cash register registered in the eKasa system,” said Lenka Wittenbergerová, President of the Financial Administration, as quoted by TASR. This translates to 185,000 active cash registers. 57,000 of them applied voluntarily because the obligation comes into effect on July 1, 2019.
