In an era of technological demands, it's important for businesses to keep pace and ensure compliance with regulations. With the recent implementation of requirements for digital cash registers, it's crucial for businesses in the retail and service sectors with an annual turnover of less than 10 million DKK to understand the new rules and ensure a smooth transition.

What is digital sales tracking?

Digital sales tracking, also known as a digital cash register system, is a way of electronically recording and storing sales information. This includes details like product descriptions, customer details, prices, staff information, and transaction records. Using digital tools for sales tracking helps businesses improve accuracy and streamline their sales processes. It also makes reporting, bookkeeping, and analyzing sales data easier, enabling businesses to better plan and grow

Why is this being implemented ?

This implementation of digital cash registers is being introduced now in response to previously identified issues with inaccurate reporting and lack of sales registration in certain industries, especially within the retail and service sectors. Tax authorities have experienced challenges in the years leading up to this implementation with incorrect reporting of turnover and VAT from businesses in these sectors, resulting in significant loss of tax revenue.

This measure is part of a broader political effort aimed at strengthening the fight against irregularities in the economy and ensuring fairer taxation. By mandating the use of digital cash registers with specific features, it is hoped to increase transparency and reduce the possibility of inaccurate reporting and tax evasion.

Therefore, these new rules are being implemented now to address these issues and ensure more effective monitoring and control of businesses' economic activities.
