The article 88 of the French Finance Act stipulates that a cash register or commercial management software must be: unalterable, secure, allow legal archiving, allow the transmission of information in a format usable by the tax administration.

The problem was that open source e-commerce CMS did not meet these criteria for French market.

But there is good news, Thursday 15 June, the Ministry of Action and Public Accounts has just announced a refocusing of software compliance rules on cash systems only.

Finally, we return to the original philosophy of the text, which aimed at parallel operations potentially carried out by traders. A great relief for the millions of CMS users, who are not put in the same caddy.
