France: Tax Regulation

Cash Register Compliance and the New French Tax Regulation

New Regulations

France has reinforced the fight against value-added tax fraud for several years. Provisions of the finance law no. 2015-1785 – Article 88 establish the obligation for professionals’ subject to value-added tax to prove the use of a secured cash management system. At the end of 2015, the law was passed and the use of non-certified cash registers is prohibited beginning 01.01.2018. All cash registers must ensure compliance.

The Article 88 of French law no. 2015-1796 and BOI-TVA-DECLA-30-10-30-20160803 sets four conditions, which cash registers need to meet:

  • Tamper-proof condition
  • security condition
  • retention condition
  • archiving condition

In the case of a tax audit, the taxable person must submit to the tax authorities a certificate issued by an accredited body or an individual certificate from the manufacturer in order to prove that the software used meets these requirements.
