Online cash desks for travel agencies: the procedure for the transition of travel agencies to online KKT

New online ticket offices: will a tourist be able to see the TA commission

Explanations of the industry lawyer Georgy Mokhov

On July 1, the so-called third stage of the fiscal reform, on the introduction of cash registers and the transition to online cash registers, which will now have to be applied by all legal entities and individual entrepreneurs working in the service sector, is coming to an end.

The goal of the reform is the fiscalization of all settlements, the use of cash registers even for non-cash payments and any methods of on-line settlements. In the short term, the cancellation of tax returns for individual entrepreneurs on a simplified system of 6% and the possibility of tax authorities immediately after issuing a check to see information about the benefits received by the travel agent from each transaction.

Will a tourist be able to see this information, and how the introduction of online cash registers will affect the work of a travel agency - about this Profi. ravel spoke with the founder of the law firm Persona Grata Georgy Mokhov.

On the Persona Grata website, you can watch a webinar on the implementation of online cash registers and how a travel agent can protect its commission.

What is the essence of the changes that will take place in July?

From July 1, all deferrals will end, including those allowing the use of old-format strict reporting forms instead of CCP. There is no normative act that would talk about the extension of the application of the printing BSO, and even if travel agencies retain the right to use the strict reporting form, it must have the same fiscal characteristics as the check and be issued from an automated system connected to the operator of fiscal data.

And still a fairly large number of travel agencies believe that this problem will not affect them in any way, and the corresponding cash registers have not yet been installed.

The entire mechanism of the online cash register will ultimately lead to the fact that the tax authority will see all the income of the travel agency for tax accounting purposes. In fact, the cashier's check, which in fact will be a kind of electronic record of the transaction, will contain all information, including about the additional benefit that the agent receives when settling with clients.

Will the tourist be able to see the information about the commission for sure?

Hello friends. Travel check is a fairly convenient way to pay for goods and services abroad, which has its advantages over cash and even bank cards.

And today, as you already understood, we will talk in detail about what traveler's checks are and what they are for.

About the concept

A traveler's check, or travel check (English traveler’s check) is a type of payment documents, which is a monetary obligation of the issuer (organization that issued the paper) to pay the amount specified in the check to its owner.

Simply put, it is an alternative to cash.

The check also has its own currency. As a rule, these are US dollars or euros. Their face value can be:

  • $ 50, $ 100 and $ 500.
  • 50, 100, 200 and 500 euros.

There are also checks in other currencies - pounds, reales, yen, yuan, Canadian and Australian dollars, as well as several others.

The largest issuers, i.e. The “manufacturers” of travel checks are American Express (AmEx) and Travelex.

Traveler's checks are much safer than cash and bank cards. In case of damage or loss, the travel check can be restored at any nearest bank and immediately cashed out.

Tourism has become one of the areas of activity in which a business must necessarily switch to cash register equipment (CCP), which transmits sales data to the tax service online. Firms providing services in the field of tourism are required to connect the device of a new type by July 1, 2019. Initially, it was assumed that the transition to online cash registers for travel agencies and other small and medium-sized businesses would be carried out a year earlier (until 01.07. production in the proper volume. Therefore, the government issued a new law that extended the transition to online cash registers for some categories of business entities, including travel agencies.

On what basis has the transition to online checkouts been delayed

The right not to use online cash registers for travel agencies is given by the federal law of 03.7.016 N 290-FZ. According to this regulatory act, legal entities that provide the population with various services that are not related to the public catering sector, until July 1, 2019, can use ordinary devices instead of cash registers with a fiscal drive to transfer information to the Federal Tax Service. Clients such organizations are required to issue strict reporting forms (SRF). The procedure for issuing SRF is established by 54-FZ.

Tour operators in most cases refer to organizations that pay taxes under the simplified taxation system (STS). According to 290-FZ, legal entities and individual entrepreneurs who are on OSNO, STS, UTII and PSN must go to the online KKT by 01.7.019.

Using BSO

SSO for organizations providing services to the population in the field of tourism are tourist vouchers. A voucher issued in accordance with all the rules replaces the cashier's receipt, provided that the client pays for the purchase in full.

The form of such SRF is approved by law. Vouchers issued by agencies must contain the following information:

Use of CCP before

Agencies involved in the tourist business, prior to the mandatory introduction of electronic cash registers, are obliged to provide customers with payment receipts in the following cases:

  • When only a part of the amount is paid for a voucher when concluding an agreement, BSO is legally an appendix to the service agreement, but not a payment receipt. The cashier's receipt must be punched separately.
  • When cashless payments are made with individuals. Non-cash payments here mean all types of crediting funds to the current account of a travel agent or tour operator using electronic means of payment: payment by credit card, purchase on the Internet, payment by payment orders or receipts through a bank.
