The health crisis has pushed many retailers to go digital and open an online store. The government wholeheartedly supports the digitization process and has set up the website.

This site lists more than 40 offers, which are accessible and free of charge, in order to enable small business owners to maintain and continue their business online. The offers include: creating a website, finding a logistics or remote payment solution, joining a market place, etc. …

To help you in your digitalization process, fiskaltrust returns on the subject of the legal obligations of e-tailers in terms of collection systems.


Subsequent to laws passed in January 2018, all cash register software, cash registers and other cashier systems must be secured.

Also, in order to combat VAT fraud, French law requires all cash register software and systems to comply with ISCA (conditions of inalterability, security, conservation and archiving of data).

You can prove your compliance in two ways:

  • By an individual certificate from the publisher of the accounting or management software or the cash register system concerned
  • By a certificate issued by an accredited body under the conditions provided for in Article L.433-4 of the Consumer Code.

Who is concerned?

Many e-tailers mistakenly believe they are in compliance with the law. However, the law stipulates that collection systems that only accept payments by card or bank transfer are not affected by the certification requirement.

But beware, if you accept the following means of payment:

  • Payment in cash or check upon delivery
  • Voucher
  • Gift card

As soon as you accept any other types of payment than credit/debit card or wire transfer you are affected by the obligation to secure your checkout system and must ensure it is in compliance with the law.
