GERMANY: QR Code can be used to shorten the receipt!

On June 25th amendments to the Kassensichverordnung were approved allowing the receipt to be shortened by using of QR Code. In that way costs and resources can be saved.

Section 6 sentence 2, previously stating that the information on a receipt must be legible for anyone without machine support is now worded as follows:

The information according to sentence 1 must be:

  • Readable for everyone without machine support or
  • Readable from a QR code.

The QR code must correspond to the digital interface of the financial administration (DSFinV).
