Fiscalisation - what is it and why do I need it?

Questions:

  • What is fiscalisation?
  • How does the safety device work?
  • What should be written on the receipt?

Description:

The aim of fiscalisation is to prevent all manipulation of cash registers. The fiscalisation in Germany contains two components: the technical security device and the cash register receipt.

What does the technical security device (TSE) do?

When you sell a product through your cash register, this information is sent to the technical security device. This creates a forgery-proof signature. When you sell a second product, a new signature is created, but it is a combination between the previous process and the new process. This creates a sequence of signatures that reflects all checkout processes in a traceable and forgery-proof manner. Via a standardised interface, this sequence can be transferred to the tax office during a cash audit.

In order to ensure that all purchasing processes are recorded, the legislator requires that the signing must take place within 45 seconds. If this is not the case, then the receipt must state that TSE was not available for signing. And this is where the receipt comes in.

The receipt

In addition to the previous information, the receipt must now also contain the most relevant information about the technical security device. This includes the signature as well as the serial number of the TSE.

To speed up a cash register audit, it is also advisable to offer a special QR code. This allows the cashier to check the receipt quickly and easily without disturbing your sale.
