UrBC, Yekaterinburg, March 15, 2019. Yekaterinburg, Surgut, and Tyumen are currently the Urals’ top three markets for online cash desk transactions. According to telecom analysts, every one in three MegaFon SIM cards installed in an online cash desk gets used within Sverdlovsk Region, MegaFon’s press service reports.

Courier delivery services are switching to online settlements and smart terminals faster than other businesses this year. Companies operating in the retail and wholesale trade sector are using more Internet traffic to send their data to the fiscal authorities than any other Sverdlovsk Region-based businesses.

‘The third stage of the cash desk reform comes to an end on July 1, 2019, by which time every company must switch to online cash desks. According to Sverdlovsk Region division of Russia’s Federal Tax Service, as many as 80,000 online cash desk units have been registered with the fiscal bodies by the beginning of the year, which exceeds the number of old-format cash desks by 1.8 times,’ the press service says.

MegaFon also says that Sverdlovsk Region is the Urals’ No.1 constituency in terms of the number of new online cash desks getting activated in the area: there are twice as many SIM cards installed in Sverdlovsk Region-based online terminals as there are cards getting activated in Chelyabinsk Region and Tyumen Region; the amount of related Internet traffic is also twice as large in Sverdlovsk Region.

‘Small enterprises and micro-businesses are switching to smart terminals increasingly more often. Within Sverdlovsk Region, Yekaterinburg is the fastest-growing market for the service, followed by Novouralsk and Kamensk-Uralsky. The demand for the online cash desks peaked in the middle of winter, with the next surge in popularity expected in the spring, as companies will be getting ready to face the new legislative changes. To make the switch to online cash desks easier, we offer small businesses our full-package, everything-included Ready-Made Online Cash Desk,’ says MegaFon Ural Corporates Development Director Inna Smirnova.

MegaFon’s package has everything a business needs to start operating: an online cash desk, a fiscal memory device (large enough for fifteen or thirty-six months’ worth of data), prepaid Internet traffic to send your fiscal data to the tax authorities, and a SIM card with a special cash desk-suitable subscription type.
