In July 2020, online devices will become mandatory for hotels, guesthouses, and gastronomy in the broad sense. In addition, taxpayers selling coal, briquette and similar solid fuels will also be covered.

Other entrepreneurs, selling to individuals, which are not encompassed in any of the previous groups, will be required to introduce online cash registers by January 2023 at the latest.
Voluntary usage of new online devices, in other hand, is possible from May 2019. The new cash registers are to be easier to monitor, which in turn will help to reduce the number of inspections.
