EET in the Payment Gateway

  • Dark
  • PDF

In the Client ortal, you have the option of registering all payments via the payment gateway. The EET function offers:

  • recording transactions processed by the payment gateway
  • issuing a data report to the Financial Administration
  • mediating communication with the Financial Administration and receiving a unique code
  • issuing an electronic receipt - we send it to you and to your end customer by e-mail
  • in the case of a refund, the receipt in the Financial Administration system will be cancelled
  • administration interface for entering sales and sending receipts manually 

If you are not a VAT payer, the above procedure is final in your case.

If you are a VAT payer, you can record sales with 21% or 15% VAT.

EET activation

You can activate EET in the Client Portal under Integration> Store settings> EET settings. We recommend creating EET authentication details on the tax portal website in advance or requesting them from the tax bureau. You can then upload the received certificate to the EET module in the administration interface of the payment gateway.

Conditions for using EET on the payment gateway can be found here.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost to activate the EET service on the payment gateway?
Activation of EET on the payment gateway is free.

What VAT rates are available in the EET solution?
We support all VAT rates, as well as their combinations, i.e. 0%, 10%, 15%, 21%. For the purposes of a rate other than 21%, it is necessary to implement an extension of the communication protocol for the necessary data transmissions.

Does EET allow card payments in Slovakia in EUR and Slovak VAT?
Yes, this is part of the EET solution.

Does EET allow dealing with payments in EUR, where the merchant is a Czech company with VAT in the Czech Republic, but the customer is from Slovakia?
Yes, this is part of the EET solution. Sales in CZK and VAT data are transferred.

Does EET allow dealing with payments in EUR, when the merchant has a Czech ID number, but a Slovak VAT number?
Income tax is paid in the Czech Republic, but VAT does not apply in the Czech Republic. Yes, this is part of the EET solution. Revenue in CZK is transferred and VAT data is not specified.

Is EET an issue if the entity has a Slovak ID number, but the VAT number is Czech and the payment is made in CZK with Czech VAT?
Yes, this is subject to EET records if the subject has an establishment in the Czech Republic and the income is also taxed in the Czech Republic.

What effect does VAT have on the need to register EET?
For non-payers none, it is included in the final price. For VAT payers, it is necessary to set the VAT value in the Client Portal. In the case of a VAT value other than 21% or in the case of a combination of different VAT values, it is necessary to implement an extension of the communication protocol.

Where can I find a description of the implementation protocol?
The implementation protocol is available in the Client Portal in the documentation section.

What payments are subject to EET registration?
According to Section  5 of the Act on the registration of sales, formal requirements for registered sales are met by a payment to the taxpayer, which is made:

  • in cash
  • a non-cash transfer of funds for which the payer gives an order through the payee, who is the sales recording taxpayer (typically card transactions, regardless of whether they are debit, credit or prepaid bank cards)
  • by cheque
  • by bill of exchange
  • in other forms that are similar in nature to foregoing (e.g. gift cards, vouchers for goods and services - including meal vouchers, as well as payments via tokens and similar instruments, including virtual currencies)
  • by offsetting a deposit or similar principal deposited by one of the foregoing methods of payment

Does the EET solution transfer FIK and BKP codes?
We obtain the fiscal identification code (FIK) from the EET system. If the system does not return this information, the taxpayer's signature code (PKP) is added to the receipt. The receipt will contain all the mandatory data according to the regulation. We process and transmit FIK (EET), PKP (merchant's certificate) and the taxpayer's security code BKP (merchant's certificate) within the communication protocol.

Is it possible to transfer transactions outside the payment gateway in the EET solution?
Yes, the EET module allows you to enter revenue outside of payments processed by the payment gateway.

Is it possible to cancel a transaction in full or in part in the EET solution?
Yes, the EET module allows you to enter revenue "with a minus sign", which will be reflected as a cancellation.

What is the correct procedure for implementing EET?
As a merchant, you will get authentication details, business registration and a certificate. The certificate (file in the format e.g. 0123456789.p12), which you save on your PC during the process of obtaining the certificate from the tax administration portal. This is then uploaded to the Client Portal under Trade settings> Trade> EET settings. In the EET settings, you complete all the necessary data including the selection of automatic mode (no programming required) or advanced mode (according to technical specifications). The EET solution enables several ways of recording and sending receipts. The recommended option is to send the receipt by e-mail from the payment gateway to both the customer and the merchant.

What does a receipt sent to the payer look like?
A sample receipt is available in the Client Portal of the EET module, as is the format of the e-mail notification to the customer and the payer.

What tax base calculation model is used in the EET module?
We use the so-called coefficient method to calculate the tax base. If the merchant uses a different calculation method, we recommend implementing an extension of the communication protocol and transferring the specific values to the Client Portal.
