As a matter of fact, the profitabilty is decreasing in many sectors today, and the local Retail Market sector is not an exemption. That is why, companies are working hard to increase the efficiency in all fields of their activities. The investment and use of an ECR is one of the tools to help yourselves.
Some of the important points to consider how to decide for an ECR and vendor, are;
• Total purchasing cost of the ECR:
+ One-time expenses;
– Hardware investment
– Software (s) investment
– Infrastructure investment (Additional Ethernet line, switches, etc.).
+ Expenses during the lifetime of ECR;
– Hardware maintenance agreement,
– Expenses not covered by the hardware maintenance agreement (Various cables etc.),
– Software maintenance agreement,
– Expenses not covered by the software maintenance agreement. (Integrations etc.)
– Expenses of consumables used by ECR (For example, in a market chain which uses 60pcs N-POS ECRs, it can be saved more than 25.000 TL annually by using medium quality thermal paper).
Today, local markets in Turkey operate with decreasing profit margins. Aware of the fact that one of the keys to maintaining profitability is “efficiency”, EnPOS prioritizes offering solutions to its customers that enable them to work efficiently.
For this reason, our N-POS cash registers;
• They are robust, because they are designed and produced by our engineers based on the usage habits of the local market,
• They have low maintenance cost,
• They do not require additional infrastructure for New Generation ECR installation,
• They are unrivaled in terms of operation speed.
+ The Turkish people are very sensitive when it comes to how fast the service is they receive. And depending on the speed and quality of the service, they may show negative reactions up to change their shopping habits. In this regard, our Cash register will put you ahead of the competition .
+ Thanks to the speed of our Cash registers, you may make do with less devices than other brands.
All the taxpayers who are selling goods, with or without further process, to end users or to first and second class merchants providing service to end users are obliged to use New Generation ECR, except for the sales of goods and services they provide for which they are obliged to issue an invoice.
In this respect;
1 – Those who are obligant according to the legislation of the Law No: 1-3100 (except those exempted by the Ministry),
2 – Those who are within the scope of first and second class traders according to the Tax Procedure Law,
3 – Retailers and Service Providers,
4 – Those who are not obliged to issue invoices according to the Tax Procedure Law
in other words all the taxpayers who make sales which can be documented with retail sales receipts are obliged to use New Generation ECR (YNÖKC). Those taxpayers who automatically issue an invoice for each and every sale transaction are not an exemption.
There are basically two types of new generation cash register devices, single / computer connected and EFT-POS feature (Pos cash register). In addition, cash register devices to fuel pumps and ECRs which can issue cinema entrance tickets and passenger transport tickets are also covered by this Communiqué.
The currently applied or future conditions depend on the working conditions of the banks. Therefore, taxpayers are rasked to negotiate them with the banks they are working with.
According to the explanation made in the paragraph (a) of section 4 of the General Communiqué No 426 of the Tax Procedure Law, only the taxpayers who have to use a payment recording device (except those exempted by our Ministry) according to the Law No. 3100 and related legislation;
– Those who use mobile EFT-POS devices in their activities,
– Those who provide parking services on the roadside,
They have to use the new generation Cash register with EFT–POS feature from 01/10/2013 on.
Peripherals such as Barcode or Data matrix reader, magnetic card reader, balance, EFT POS, drawer can be connected to the New Generation Payment Recorder Device. In addition to these, corporate software and solutions such as CRM, ERP can be connected via GMP3 protocol via wired external computer, PC POS systems and TSM.
Since the obligation to use the New Generation ECR is imposed to the first and second class traders engaged in retail trade or performing services, the wholesale taxpayers are not obliged to use the New Generation ECR.
Since the obligation to use the New Generation ECR is imposed to the first and second class merchants, taxpayers bookkeeping by Single Entry do not have to use the New Generation ECR.
Yes. In order to be able to send data to the Ministry of Finance and to communicate with TSM ,it is necessary to have access to internet (GSM, ADSL, etc.) At the same time, the necessary line system should be used to ensure EFT POS communication.
No. Without carrying around a separate device for each bank, you can have the opportunity to work with all banks on only one New Generation ECR. In this way, you increase the payment options you will offer to your customers.
In accordance with the explanation in section 4 of the Tax Procedure Law General Communiqué No: 426;
You are obliged to use;
-New generation ECR with EFT – POS feature as of 01.10.2013 in your roadside parking lot,

You may continue with your current system. However, if you want to use a mobile device for non-fuel sales (market, car wash, oil change etc.), then it should be a New Generation Cash Register devices with EFT–POS feature to be used for these kind of sales exclusively In places where mobile EFT-POS is not used a single/computer-connected New Generation ECR may be used.

You are obliged to use a New Generation ECR since you also serve customers who are not registered in the daily customer list.

Only one EFT POS can be connected.
No, it cannot be changed. According to the legislation taxpayers are able to use the Cash Registers subject to Law 3100 (old generation) until their financial memory is full, not to exceed the start date of their obligation. Since new financial memory will not be installed in the Old Generation Cash Registers whose financial memories have expired, the taxpayers (after purchasing a new device) must scrap the old Cash Registerswith full financial memories tin accordance with the explanations made in the 4th part of the General Communiqué of the Payment Register Device 60.
