You have probably heard about the AES key and certificate during your preparations for the cash register and have wondered how to get them. Therefore, the following provides some information so that the integration of the cash register runs smoothly.
Ideally, you will not come into contact with the certificate and the AES key, as we automatically buy the certificate and automatically register the cash register in FinanzOnline. The certificate costs 200 €. But you can get it back as a 100% tax premium. You can find out how to do this here.
To register your cash register we need the access data of the so-called “Registrierkassen Webservice Benutzer”.
How can you get the “Registrierkassen Webservice Benutzer”?
You must have access to FinanzOnline. If this is not available, it must be applied for. The best way to do this is to personally go to the tax office, fill out the FON1 form and submit it with photo ID.
You will immediately receive the login details. Small business owners must also have the opportunity to set the "fiktive Umsatzsteuersignal" at the same time.
After you have received access, you can create your user at FinanzOnline. We have prepared a step-by-step guide for you.
