Poindus VariPOS TSE Solution

TSE for German fiscal regulations

Kassensicherungsverordnung (KassenSichV) regulates the technical requirements for electronic recording and security systems, such as Point-of-Sale (POS) systems & electronic cash registers in order to end the manipulation and potential tax evasion in Germany. The regulation is designed to protect against the tampering of digital records. To be legally compliant and ensure systems are tamper-proof, all POS systems in Germany must be installed with certified TSE solutions. Additionally, all existing POS systems used in the retail and hospitality sector, must be retrofitted in accordance with the requirements by the end of the grace period.

RequirementEvery transaction must be saved in a way that manipulation is not possible. Every POS has to use security system (TSE) certificated by the government. Every POS and TSE system must be reported and registered at the tax authority.

The TSE solution consists of:

  • Security module
  • Secured memory module
  • Digital interface

Poindus is ready with fiscally compliant solutions

Poindus has implemented a secure TSE solution across the whole VariPOS range that can simply be plugged into the POS system via the USB/microSD-port, making it very easy to integrate and retrofit existing systems. Our solution are easy to install by simply removing a side blanking plate and connecting the device; the device is secured by a locking screw to further ensure security and stop tampering. Additionally for non VariPOS POS systems or systems or where the secure integrated solution is not suitable, we can also supply certified TSE that can be connected via USB, SD, or microSD interface.
