Austrian fiscal law

Austrian parliament approved new fiscalization model which came into force 1st January 2016. This was the first part of fiscalization, which includes creation of Fiscal Journal (FJ) which have to be saved at each POS, central database or in Cloud. The second part of the new fiscal law is the digital signature of every cash receipt, which will be implemented on 1st April 2017.

Austrian fiscal regulation is based on two concepts. First concept relates to usage of digital signature device for every issued receipt and second to „closed system“ in which independent audit of Company processes and organization is needed. „Closed system“ refers to the company that has more than 30 cash registers. But there is one difference between these two concepts - usage of digital signature device and registration of each POS at Fiscal Authority what is not mandatory when we talk about „closed system“. Advantages of “closed system” are: signature device, digital certificate and POS registration at authority are not needed.

With the new regulations fiscal law in Austria requires that every POS has unique number, that has to create and maintain the fiscal totals (created by adding every cash turnover to previews one encoded with AES 256 algorithm). Based on tax information from transaction POS has to create Barcode, QR Code or OCR code on the receipt.

When it is about the end of every year, the special fiscal receipt has to be printed and saved for authority and every Retailer has to keep it for seven years.
