Fiscal requirements overview

The French Fiscal Law – Article 88 No 2015-1785 of December 29th, 2015 on Finances for 2016 (1) – was introduced to combat tax fraud and prevent subsequent changes to the basic electronic record.

The POS system manufacturer must prove of the documentation that the system is tamper-proof and how this is solved in the concrete system. Compliance with the rules is checked by an audit operated by a certifier.

There are two possibilities to get the recording system ready for the France market:

certification by an approved certification body

Two French organizations are currently certifying electronic recording systems.
Depending on the certifier the focus of the audit differs.

Both certifiers request a documentation of the whole POS system, user documentation and a description of the internal procedures.

There is no need to hand over a receipt to the customer as is mandatory in other countries.

During an audit by the tax authorities, exports specific for France need to be generated and handed over to the tax auditor.
