These devices are designed to securely record transactions and generate fiscal receipts, ensuring that sales data is accurately captured and reported.

Software Solutions: Other countries have moved towards software-based fiscalization, requiring businesses to use certified POS (Point of Sale) applications that comply with local tax reporting standards. These software solutions often include features for digital invoicing, real-time sales reporting, and secure data storage.

Hybrid Systems: A number of countries employ a combination of both hardware and software solutions to meet their fiscalization requirements. In these cases, businesses may need to use certified fiscal devices in conjunction with compliant software applications to ensure full compliance.

Web Portals: Increasingly, European countries are providing web portals that allow businesses to submit sales and tax data directly to tax authorities. These portals facilitate efficient data exchange and compliance management, simplifying the reporting process for businesses.
