Electronic sales records (EET) or online sales registration is a method where data on each transaction is sent via the Internet to the Financial Administration. The whole EET process takes place in the following 5 steps:
- The entrepreneur sends a data message about the transaction (in XML format) to the Financial Administration
- The financial administration will send back a confirmation (with a fiscal identification code) that it has accepted the transaction
- The entrepreneur issues a receipt to the customer, including the fiscal identification code
- The receipt is handed over to the customer
- The customer can check the receipt on the Tax Portal and the entrepreneur will verify the sales in the electronic application Electronic Records of Sales
From a technical point of view, EET requires an Internet connection at the time of receipt of payment, a device that allows this connection (PC, tablet, mobile phone with the necessary software, specialized electronic cash register, cash register system) and a printer for receipts. The choice of cash register equipment and specific software is selected by the entrepreneur.
