FZ-54 – the Main Principles

54-FZ is the basic law for controlling a business that deals with the reception of cash. Changes to this law directly affected retail businesses, cafes and restaurants, pharmacies, gas stations, law firms and service companies.

The most important thing that changes this law - is the way of interaction between business and the Federal Tax Service. All forms of interaction with the agency and reporting are transferred to automatic mode. Online cash desks, which are required to use the legislation, will independently send checks to the Federal Tax Service, in the "online" mode, excluding the possibility of "correcting" the data in favor of the entrepreneur.

The main goal of the law - is to make the business more transparent, increase tax revenues and reduce the burden on its department. Therefore, special attention in the law is paid to the automation of business processes and the online exchange of information with the Federal Tax Service.

According to the requirements of FZ-54, online cash desks must be installed at all points representing public catering. Among these are: cafes, restaurants, bars, canteens. A small kiosk cafe, where chebureks or shaurma are sold, is also included here.
