E-shop owners and small tradesmen have been waiting for a long time to see how it will turn out with exceptions from EET, which were proposed at the end of November by Finance Minister Andrej Babiš. They arrived on Friday, January 13, but no one was pleased with the result . None of the exceptions passed in the Chamber of Deputies.
When the second wave of electronic sales records breaks out on March 1, retailers, wholesalers and e-commerce entrepreneurs will be involved . In the next stages, when it comes to craftsmen or the liberal professions, even the smallest entrepreneurs will have to register .
Let us recall which EET exemptions were part of the tax package under discussion.
Entrepreneurs and people from the Association for Electronic Commerce (APEK) have long pointed out the complexity of e-commerce . Examples are payment gateways.
Czech traders use various gateways owned and managed by people from all over the world - it's not just domestic teams that could prepare for EET. In addition, payment gateways do not inform about the sale immediately and up software development firm , but send the entrepreneur money to the account, for example, only once a day , so it is not possible to issue a receipt in time. That is why e-shops fought for exclusion from the electronic records of sales.
Self-employed persons who earn up to 250 thousand crowns a year could get relief from EET. It would be enough to arrange a flat tax and pay the state a pre-agreed tax each year. In addition to getting rid of tax return paperwork, entrepreneurs would not have to deal with cash registers.
EET is a problem for e-shops. When will the solution be?
Payments from account to account are no longer subject to EET. This also applies to cash on delivery - if the carrier sends money from cash on delivery to the account, the entrepreneur does not have to register electronically. Thanks to this, cash on delivery may gain in popularity again.
Merchants will have to record card payments through payment gateways. However, the financial administration has not issued clearer guidelines for e-commerce and application development. " Now we have to solve not only in cooperation with the state administration, how to proceed in the registration of sales for online payment methods in practice. These are big technical complications for e-shops, ”said APEK director Jan Vetyška.
The Vario has been ready for electronic registration since November thanks to the EET connector agenda. But there is a problem with e-shops that can't send sales information immediately so that Vario can issue a receipt in time. " Merchants are required by law to record payments immediately. In practice, however, this is incompatible with the technical possibilities and the real functioning of e-shops , ”said Radka Aschenberennerová, Altus Sales Director. Online card payment is one of the most convenient and increasingly popular payment methods among Czech customers.
