In the interview with PrimeMinister.kz, the Acting Director of the Department of Digitalization and Public Services of the State Revenues Committee of the Ministry of Finance Zangar Shyndali said why the transition from traditional devices to updated cash registers is necessary, and what are the advantages of using online cashiers for entrepreneurs.
According to Zangar Shyndali, the use of online cashiers gives entrepreneurs certain advantages. So, for example, autocompletion of the book of account facilitates the work: all the procedures take place online, the systems make their own calculations. In addition, this approach provides transparency. Browsing the Internet makes box office mobile. For this, there are already applications, sites, personal accounts.
“The online cash register allows you to transfer information to the tax authorities. That is, we already see information about monetary transactions without waiting for tax reporting. As you know, tax reporting is done every six months or throughout the year. The advantages are switching to online cash registers allowed us to implement a public service where a taxpayer can register an online cashier without visiting tax authorities, that is, he does not need to fill out a cash settlement book, and there is no need to put a seal on an online cash register. He can do all this remotely and on the site of the fiscal data operator. That is, here we minimize contact with tax authorities,” said Shyndali.
In addition, he said, cash registers are a tool in the fight against the shadow economy. According to research, most of the shadow economy falls on trade, where cash prevails. Just cash registers allow you to fiscalize this cash.
“Today we see about 3 billion checks that have already been struck online. The more checks consumers will demand, the more information we will see, the more cash will be fiscalized. Consumers must claim their legal checks. Every year for five years we hold promotions where we encourage to receive checks. Next year we want to implement a cashback, when a consumer receives a bonus from each check that they can spend on paying taxes,” said Shyndali.
Before switching to online cashiers, an entrepreneur must be registered as an individual entrepreneur or legal entity. A cash register can be bought at any public service center or downloaded using the mobile application. A cashier can be used online through a computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone. After acquiring an online cash register, it must be registered on the website of the fiscal data operator and enter into an agreement stipulating that the fiscal data operator has the right to receive and transfer information about monetary settlements to tax authorities. Next, you need to knock out checks for each perfect operation.
He also recalled that during 2019, an online cash register could be purchased at a 50% discount. During the year, the norm worked, within which the state returns 50% of the amount of the purchased cash register machine. This measure was designed to encourage taxpayers to purchase online cash registers.
