May old cash register systems be used after the 1st of January 2017 when the enterprise is sold/transferred?

An enterprise has bought another enterprise and asks the distributor of the cash register system to change the organization number as well as resetting the counters. Is this ok in relation to the new legislation?

Purchase/transfer of an enterprise is not regarded as a sale of cash register systems according to the Cash Register System Act.

A distributor of cash register systems may therefore alter the organization number and other permanent information in the system, also including resetting counters without coming in conflict with the new legislation.

This will apply to:

  • Purchase of an enterprise
  • Mergers and demergers
  • Conversions
  • Other reorganizations
