The free upgrade for all users of our Billy fiscal cash registers will be activated with the start of this legal obligation
The dual display of prices will be a key measure for consumer protection in the process of introducing the euro. The obligation of dual reporting of prices will be in force for a period of approximately five months before the introduction of the euro until one year after the introduction of the euro.
Companies will have to apply dual price reporting on price lists and promotional materials they publish on websites and in the media. Cash register companies will also be adjusted for dual price reporting so that the prices of individual products and the total amount of the bill are shown in both currencies on the invoices. During the period of dual pricing, the price lists must not contain redundant information that could confuse the consumer. So, for example, in addition to prices in kuna and euros, only the fixed conversion rate (in the full numerical amount, i.e. with all six digits) will be allowed on labels in stores so that customers can check whether the prices have been converted correctly.
Otherwise, here are the most important highlights:
HOW WILL THE PRICES BE CALCULATED FROM KUN TO EURO?
The official fixed conversion rate will be applied to convert prices.
WHO IS ALL OBLIGED TO ENFORCE THE OBLIGATION OF DOUBLE DISCLOSURE OF PRICES?
The obligation will apply to both the private and public sectors.
HOW WILL THE SUPERVISION OF DOUBLE DISCLOSURE OF PRICES BE CARRIED OUT?
Competent authorities will monitor in detail compliance with the obligation of dual price reporting and, if necessary, punish violators.
WHAT DOES DOUBLE DISCLOSURE OF PRICES MEAN?
On price lists, promotional materials and invoices, the prices of individual products and services will be shown in both currencies.
