Abstract: From the point of view of fiscal authorities and also the taxpayer, use of technology has always been considered a major instrument in reducing administrative burdens and compliance costs. A basic mean in reducing costs would be the existence and availability of a proper infrastructure that could allow large-scale penetration of technological advances. Another necessary condition in increasing efficiency is adopting a broader strategy that implies automation of fiscal devices, beneficial for government, fiscal authorities and also the business sector.

Keywords: standards, regulations, fiscal devices, electronic cash register.
