Obbligo POS: la risposta è myPOS thumbnail

POS Obligation: The answer is myPOS

Here we are: on June 30, 2022, the POS obligation is triggered. Or rather, in reality the POS has already been mandatory since 2013 but until now its absence and non-use were not subject to sanctions. But now things change, and it is good to be prepared.

POS Obligation: What Changes?

As anticipated, the obligation of the POS it’s not the real news. In fact, the POS has been mandatory since 2013, according to the provisions of article 13 of the decree-law of 18 October 2012, n. 179 and subsequently by article 23 of the Tax Decree linked to the 2020 Budget Law.

What does it mean? That traders, operators and freelancers (electricians, lawyers, craftsmen, accountants, doctors, etc.) are required to have the POS and to accept electronic payments. And yes, this applies to both those who have a fixed location and to those with itinerant activities, such as street vendors.

So what’s the news? As anticipated, the change concerns sanctions. Activities that do not have a POS by 30 June 2022 may be fined.
The basic amount of the fine is 30 euros, to which 4% of the transaction denied to the customer will be added.

Let’s take an example.
Let’s say you walk into a shop. Buy what you need and then ask to pay for everything – 100 euros – with the card.
If the merchant refuses, the penalty for him would be 30 euros + 4% of 100 euros. Basically 34 euros.

Yes, but which POS do I choose?

When we say “POS”A part of us think of the classic bank. And that’s not entirely wrong. Until a few years ago, in fact, the most common procedure involved the involvement of classic banking institutions. In short, in essence, the merchants had to go to the bank, make sure they had a business or professional account and finally request the POS, which normally provided for the payment of the monthly fee, commissions on the transaction and any one-off costs, such as for example the one for installation.

However, things have evolved a lot. Today the bank is only one of the possible alternatives. In fact, over the years companies have been born that have been able both to offer a better service to their customers and to offer more modern and intuitive terminals.
