Basic S4F information

Written by VF on . Posted in Articles

Developing new functions can be a long and expensive task, and that is why Service Plus IT is proud to offer you a finished fiscal solution which is already being used by Peek & Cloppenburg, Metro, Deichmann, New Yorker Croatia, C&A, Takko, OBI, Gavrilovic, NTL, and others.

Service Plus IT has created a printer driver which, apart from printing functions, also features fiscal functions. The cash register software sends a receipt to the printer, without having any knowledge or notion of fiscalization. The fiscal printer driver, after receiving the receipt data, contacts the Tax Administration, and prints the ZKI and JIR numbers on the receipt.
It should be noted that the responsibility of ensuring that a receipt is fiscalized cannot be placed upon the employees working on business premises. It can easily happen that a receipt is sent to a customer, containing a ZKI and missing a JIR number. On the other hand, the Tax Administration keeps track of all receipts, and they can easily determine that there is a missing receipt in the sequence and send an inspection or a fine to the fiscalization subject after a period of 48 hours.

It is legally mandated that all changes regarding business hours or any other information regarding business premises be reported to the Tax Administration, which is another obligation which must be kept track of. That is why the Service Plus solution is comprised of two parts - the receipt fiscalization part at the cash register, and the back office part. S4F Back Office is designed to control all cash registers and all transactions from a central point, and take care of subsequent authorization; it is used to send all business premises and business hours data to the Tax Administration, which is the piece of information that is changed most often of all. The usage of a central point to manage fiscal processes ensures maximum control over everything that happens on the business premises.
At the moment, there are over 800 cash registers in Croatia using the S4F fiscal driver, and we believe that this is the guarantee of a successful product.

About the procedure

Fiscalization in Slovenia

The Fiscalization Law was proposed in order to avoid tax evasion for subjects who charge cash for their receipts, such as retail locations, restaurants, and bars. Yearly tax statements have shown that the declared turnovers of a significant number of such subjects are very low, which points at a large number of cases of receipt non-issuance, or their manipulation in practice. In order to prevent it in a more efficient manner, the proposed Law has prescribed the process of fiscalization – a set of measures used to implement an overview of the issuance of cash transaction receipts.

Unlike the experience in countries with fiscal laws – Bosnia and Herzegovina, Republika Srpska, Serbia and Albania – where outdated fiscal printer concepts are used which can only support the businesses of small convenience or grocery stores with one or two cash registers, Croatian on-line concept will be used.  This concept has proven to be have a quality solution for large commercial chains and complex sales systems.

Advanced merchandise payment, promotional actions (e.g. buy one, get one free), bulk merchandise sales, coupon payment, award coupons, vouchers, tax-free purchasing (diplomatic and consular personnel), limited number of characters for quantity and price, etc. are all issues for fiscal solutions with printers. Fiscalization is meant to reduce tax evasion, but it can also create huge expenses for merchants because of its limitations, when the solution is hardware-based.

A software solution is a good choice for fiscalization, because it will not create a financial burden for companies which is too high, nor will it create a cash outflow from country, which would occur in the case of a hardware approach (printer), which would result in equipment imports from other countries.

Each receipt element will be sent to the Ministry of Finance and the Tax Administration. In practice, this means that receipts will have to be issued using POS devices and an Internet connection, which means the sales points will have to be connected to the Internet, while the receipt software will have to be adjusted to this. The basic work principle is simple – the fiscal software logs every receipt and in order for it to be printed and delivered to the customer, it must be certified by the Tax Administration with an Unique Receipt ID.

A problem for fiscalization could be the speed of receipt issuing, considering that a large number of receipt files will have to be sent at the same time over the Internet, in order to receive the receipt ID, which has to be printed on the receipt in QR form.
