From January, 2018, Article 88 of the 2016 Finance Act will require all retailers having clients in France to adjust their POS systems to newly created standards. Compliance with these requirements can be officially guaranteed by NF525 or Cash Management certificates.
Obtaining these documents, companies are assured to minimize the risk of VAT fraud by the way of sale integrity, which means strict registration of all purchases made and related taxes in order to avoid any sales data modification or removing. This way you can convince your French clients and the government of this country in having your sales information securely stored and trackable.
There are two organizations in France issuing the certificates, which can ensure complying with the law – INFOCERT (NF525 certification) and the Laboratoire National de Métrologie et d’Essais LNE (Cash Management System certification).
Since eMagicOne develops store managing software, our clients are often wondering if the company is NF525-certified. Store Managers for Magento, PrestaShop, WooCommerce, etc contain POS section and enable managing orders. However, all orders created by users via pos or imported using import wizard are added to the shopping cart database, no third-party databases are used. Store Manager applies shopping cart rules while operating order data and doesn’t save, store or edit orders in any other way except of the rules provided by Shopping cart itself. The program interacts with a shopping platform directly, so if the platform is certified, the software can be considered as the one complying with the new regulations.
eMagicOne team strives to keep you informed on any nuance concerning our software and services. If you have a question, do not hesitate to contact our support manager at https://support.emagicone.com
