Hiring out of cash register systems - Can we continue to hire out cash register systems which do not comply with the new Regulation through until 1 January 2019?

The sale, hiring out and lending of cash register system are deemed equivalent under the law.  An enterprise which is hiring a cash register system at the time of entry into force of the law can continue to use the cash register system through until 1 January 2019.  Our statement Can we perform maintenance and main updates in 2017 and 2018 for our customers as at the year-end, even if the system does not comply with the requirements in the Cash Register System Act and the Cash Register System Regulation? applies correspondingly to the hiring of cash register systems.

In connection with the hiring of cash register systems to enterprises which have occasional or itinerant cash sales, e.g. enterprises which attend trade fairs, organise annual festivals, etc., the cash register system will be hired out for a shorter period of time and then returned in anticipation of the next event (in the following year). If a contract is established with an existing customer concerning continued hiring out in 2017 and 2018 before 1 January 2017, the old solution may continue to be hired out during these years, regardless of whether or not the cash register system is being used by the customer at the year-end.
