The second stage of deshadowing related to settlements in trade and services should start on January 1, 2021. Cash transaction registers will be obligatory for single taxpayers of II-IV groups working in so-called "risky" spheres.
This refers to jewelry, textiles, used goods (in stores), and auto parts sales, as well as hotel, restaurant, and travel services.
On April 1, 2021, the third stage will begin: the use of cash transaction registers (traditional or software-operated) will become mandatory for individual entrepreneurs of II-IV groups, regardless of the type of activity.
On November 4, 2020, the Verkhovna Rada failed to pass the draft law, which provides for a one-year deferral of an obligation for individual entrepreneurs to use cash registers.
The Verkhovna Rada also failed to pass the revised bill (No. 4313-d) submitted by Danylo Hetmantsev, head of the Financial, Tax and Customs Policy Committee.
