The primary mission of a tax administration is to collect the revenue that is due from taxpayers and needed by the government, under the country’s tax laws, without hindering economic activity. The greatest challenge for any tax administration is achieving and maintaining a high degree of self-assessment and voluntary compliance by taxpayers. 

Several administrations have adopted various fiscal devices in their quest to combat noncompliance, particularly around sales and the value-added tax (VAT) payable on sales. The term Electronic Fiscal Device (EFD) can be used to describe a wide variety of technological devices that revenue administrations can use to help monitor business transactions. 

First EFD was implemented in several countries in Europe in the late 1980s  as electronic tax registers (ETRs) or electronic fiscal printers (EFPs). Module that holds and manages NRGT sensitive data in these devices is named Fiscal Block (FB) or fiscal memory block (FMB). 

In many cases more advanced cash registers are standard computer based point of sale systems (POS). This site was created to give more information about fiscal block that we have designed for POS systems named TAXCOUNTER.

We are planning to collect there more information on tax contol in computer based cash registers.
