Lithuania, officially the Republic of Lithuania, is a country in the Baltic region of Europe. It is one of three Baltic states and lies on the eastern shore of the Baltic Sea. It shares land borders with Latvia to the north, Belarus to the east and south, Poland to the south, and Russia (Kaliningrad Oblast) to the southwest.
Lithuanian fiscalization history reaches back to 1996, when already cash registers were defined by certain regulations.
Still today the hardware system is applied.
Fiscal memory stores the transaction data which cannot be changed. Besides the layout of the receipt being predefined by the firmware of the fiscal device, there is a possibility of including other information on the receipt, besides the mandatory ones.
Fiscal devices must be able to print receipts but provision of electronic receipts to customers is allowed, upon acceptance by the purchaser.
POS application is not an object of certification, nor another validation process by the authorities, so retailers are free to choose a solution suitable for their business, but it must be integrated with the fiscal device.
