What is fiscalisation?

In the strict sense, fiscalisation is the process of sealing a cash register up at a service center. However, often the whole process of sending your sales data to the inland revenue inspection is called fiscalisation too. It’s initiated by the government to control entrepreneurs that get payed in cash. Fiscal printers and cash registers are used for this purpose.

Fiscal printer

Fiscal printer is a receipt printer that has a specific microchip, a modem and flash memory storage inside. When you sell anything with your POS software, the fiscal register prints a receipt and sends the information about the sale to the inland revenue inspection via mobile communication (the modem inside has a built-in GSM module) and writes sold goods and sale time onto the flash storage.

Cash register

Cash register is a fiscal printer that you can’t connecto to any POS software. You need to input all your sales on a register manually. Often you need to set it up before using: connect it to a PC and load all your goods and prices into the register. This is very inconvenient if you want to change a price or add a good quickly. Furthermore, cash registers don’t show you any statistics and revenue reports.

Who needs a fiscal printer?

Until recently using a fiscal printer was obligatory only for entrepreneurs who sell excise goods (alcohol, tobacco). According to Ukrainian Parliament’s resolution from Dec 28th 2014 all III taxation group entrepreneurs have to use fiscal printers, whether they sell alcohol or not, since July 1st 2015, and II taxation group entrepreneurs — since Jan 1st 2016 (for those of them who reach 1m hrn in revenue). Moreover, those entrepreneurs who start using a fiscal printer before Jun 30th 2015 will be exempt from fiscal examination till Jan 1th 2017.
