EET cash registers to fight VAT fraud
EET applies mainly to revenues in the form of cash, meal vouchers, gift cards and similar means of payment. On the other hand, bank transfers, payments by credit/debit cards or receivable setoffs (with certain exceptions) do not need to be registered. EET reports an .XML file via the internet to the financial administration all transactions record. This is done through a cash register, PC or mobile phone app. A unique transaction code is then returned for inclusion on the receipt. It captures all transactions – not just cash – including credit cards and vouchers. This data may then be automatically checked to VAT returns to help eliminate fraud.
