What is an etr machine?

An Electronic Tax Register (ETR) is a type of cash register used to record sales and provide ETR receipt Kenya to customers. The registers also issue daily sales reports and stores information on stocks and sales. ETRs are built with Fiscal Memory, a unique type of read only memory (ROM). It stores tax-related information created each time a service or product is sold.

Although ETR machines can be added to networks, they can also be operated as standalone devices. An ETR machine is built with various security attributes, including memory, seal, unique technical specifications and serial numbers, among others.

Unlike Electronic Cash Registers (ECR), ETR machines are falsification-proof and thus they come highly recommended in Kenya. They feature tax memory that’s built to store information related to tax. The programmable read only memory (PROM or EPROM) can store up to 1800 days of transactions or a minimum of 5 years-worth of transactions.

The machines produce easily-identifiable fiscal receipts to support the generation of fiscal summary on a daily basis. It also comes in handy during tax-compliance inspections

What do you require before we can issue you with an ETR machine?

We require a scanned copy of your KRA Pin certificate. The certificate must have value added tax (VAT) obligations for it to be used for fictionalization. Click this link to download your KRA pin certificate.
