On 1 January 2023, the amendment repealing Act. No. 112/2016 Coll., on the Electronic Records of Sales (in Czech abbreviated as “EET”), became effective. What does it mean in practice?
As of the date of the EET abolition, the Ministry of Finance (“MoF“) shut down the EET servers. From this moment on, it is not possible to record the sales towards tax administrator. The MoF servers are not available.
What to watch out for?
Impact on every company is different depending on the way the EET is implemented within their internal systems.
From a general perspective, we see the risk primarily in the fact that if your system continues to send data messages to the MoF servers and does not receive feedback, it will try to contact the MoF servers repeatedly. Consequently, a backlog of repeated data messages may accumulate. The constantly increasing queue of resent data messages can cause the cash registers to become overloaded, slowed down, or inoperable.
If you have not shut down the recording of sales yet, we recommend that you discuss this step with your IT or cash register service provider and shut down this in the cash registers.
