Digital Receipt


After reading this, you can explain the preparations for PosOperators to use digital receipts.


If you include digital receipts in the sales process, the customer can choose between a digital receipt and a printout.
With digital receipts, the PosOperator can reduce expenses for printouts and help the environment.
As a PosDealer, you thus offer a state-of-the-art PosSystem.


Please note that the visualization in the sandbox may look different than in the productive system. Please also note that different regulations or requirements may apply depending on the country where your PosSystem is used. Please refer to the country-specific regulations. Please understand that we can only describe these details without claiming to be complete.

Preparations general

PosDealers or PosOperators can make the preparations for having digital receipts available. For this, only access to the fiskaltrust.Portal with Write authorizations is required.

The Master Data of the PosOperators account in the fiskaltrust.Portal must be complete. The stored tax identification numbers should be verified.

The details of the Outlet, not the company, are used as the address on the digital receipt. Therefore, these should be checked for completeness and corrected if necessary.

The digital receipt may list a logo at the top. If this logo is desired, you should add it to the data of the Outlet. We recommend using a file in ~.png-format with transparent background for best results.

Evaluation of retrievals of digital receipts

In an audit case for the tax authorities (or in general), you, as a PosDeler or PosOperator, can verify which documents were transmitted and retrieved or printed using an export via the fiskaltrust.Portal.

Use Configuration / Queue and select the desired Queue. The button Export leads you to a page for creating new exports (Tools / Export / Create new). When using the digital receipt, an additional file is added to the Full export (XML) Export type. This file provides information about the status of the individual digital receipts. In addition, linking the data records is possible using the ftReceiptJournalID, which is contained both in the raw and in the print data records.

The file format and its structure were deliberately kept simple for your support.
The file format allows the data to be opened and read with a standard spreadsheet (e.g., Excel).
The structure of the records is built up as follows:
