The sales will be monitored through an automated information system called the Electronic Sales Monitoring System. The mechanism will ensure the implementation of electronic instruments in the process of managing, monitoring and recording sales in Moldova, IPN reports, quoting a press release of the Center of Information Technology in Finance.
Last week, the technical conception of the system was approved by the Cabinet. Acting director of the Center of Information Technology in Finance Vitalie Coceban said the State Tax Service will own the system, while the Center will implement, manage and develop it. The project is a major challenge, but the fact that the Center’s specialists have the necessary competence and sufficient experience in IT makes him confident that the system will be implemented successfully.
The Electronic Sales Monitoring System will be a common information resource for receiving online information about transactions performed by business entities through cash registers. It will ensure real-time control over the authenticity of data and security of their transmission from the cash register to the server of the State Tax Service and will enable to optimize the recording, managing and monitoring of sales and to analyze the existing risks.
Vitalie Coceban said the system will be implemented in stages so as not to affect the work of business entities. The cash register machines included in the state register in 1998-2012 will be gradually replaced with cash registers that meet the current technical requirements. The system will enable consumers to check online the authenticity and integrity of the received and stored checks, including through the email or mobile applications. This will stimulate electronic payments through mobile devices that read bank cards and the use of mobile cash register equipment by business entities.
The system will also enable to improve the quality of the preliminary analysis carried out by servants of the State Tax Service based on data about business entities’ transactions stored in the system. This will help strengthen fiscal discipline, reduce the number of inspections at business entities and of cases of tax evasion in the trading system.
