Process of replacement of old fiscal cash registers and fiscal printers started at the beginning of the year 2012. It included more than 2 million devices approximately.
In compliance with Order No. 427 issued by the Ministry of Finance, since January 1st 2017, usage of New generation of cash registers is mandatory.
The common points of all cash registers of new generation are that they are computer-based and that they have the ability to communicate with TA (GIB) Information Systems via the Internet. It is important to mention that the communication is not real-time.
There are two types of new generation devices:
˃ with EFT-POS embedded
˃ without EFT-POS
All devices have to be certified by the state and all cash register producers are guarantors of device compatibility with the law requirements. Manufacturer’s list and list of approved devices can be found on the official TA web page.
Regarding POS application, there is no real certification process, but POS application has to be approved by the authorized New generation cash register manufacturers before usage.
