The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly known as the United Kingdom (UK) or just Britain, is a country in Europe, which comprises England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. The capital is London, which is among the world’s leading commercial, financial, and cultural centers.
United Kingdom is not a fiscal country. This means that:
- No fiscal printer or hardware fiscal device is required
- There is no certification of SW or HW
- There is no online or real-time communication with the TA
Accordingly, none of the laws in the UK require the usage of specific equipment, hardware, or software when creating, processing transactions and/or issuing receipts to customers.
The final choice on the type of equipment that is going to be used is made based on business needs and internal organization.
However, mandatory for businesses is to keep all the relevant records. Companies that generate all or parts of their revenues from cash transactions must carefully document all business transactions in order to meet the requirements of the HMRC (Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs).
