Entrepreneurs and traders in Slovakia are reporting more revenue, which also increases the sum state collects on taxes.

One of the reasons is the eKasa online cash registers system introduced on July 1, 2019, the Index magazine reported.

It is compulsory for all traders, restaurants, bars, hotels and taxi drivers to connect with the system. Some of them did so only at the end of last year. Until then, there was a transition period during which the Financial Administration did not penalize entrepreneurs for not using the system. They had to prove, though, that they had asked for registration.

Currently, more than 236,000 cash registers, including virtual ones, are connected with the system.

The cash register automatically sends the data from receipts to the Financial Administration.
