Czech VAT live B2C electronic reporting of revenues


The Czech Republic is moving to launch the fourth phase of roll out of live electronic reporting of retail cash and credit card payments by consumers in person or online.

Electronic Reporting of Revenue (ERP) involves live reporting of B2C sales to the tax authorities. Transactions are reported to the tax office, which in real-time returns a unique confirmation number, fiscal identification code (FIK), for inclusion on the customer receipt. The reporting is facilitated through an approved internet-linked cash register system.

In the Czech Republic, the measure has been rolled out as follows:

  1. Dec 2016: catering and accommodation services and hospitality providers.
  2. Mar 2017: wholesalers and retailers
  3. Mar 2018: professions such as doctors, lawyers and accountants; transport and agriculture; food and beverage production and other manufacturing activities; and organisers of sports and cultural events
  4. Jan 2020: selected crafts and production activities
