Four vendors accredited for supply of devices

THE Fiji Revenue and Customs Service (FRCS) has confirmed four vendors for electronic fiscal device (EFD)/VAT monitoring system (VMS) for the Fiji market after an accreditation process.

And as the deadline nears for supermarkets and pharmacies to install EFD/VMS device, FRCS chief executive officer Visvanath Das confirmed that four vendors were identified earlier this week that supply VMS compliant services.

"We have negotiated with these vendors to ensure that there is minimum cost for compliance. More vendors will come on board once they complete the accreditation process which is currently being undertaken by FRCS," he said in a statement.

The vendors are:

1. I Computer Solutions

2. Link Technologies


4. Pacific IT Solutions

While there is no extension to the deadline for implementation, Mr Das said they would waive or defer penalty enforcement for those who have made an effort to comply by registering for VMS and collecting their smartcards with passwords.

According to Mr Das, the accredited POS Suppliers have given their implementation plans as a majority of their clients have more than one outlet and many cash registers which need to become compliant and therefore FRCS will give due consideration for that.

"We are reasonable and understand the reality that it will take some time, but we want definite roll-out plans — two days, seven days or two weeks — the supermarkets and pharmacies need to work closely with their POS/ESDC vendor for this.

"We will only defer the enforcement of penalties subject to the registration and submission of implementation plans from the vendors."

Mr Das also reiterated the deadline for supermarkets and pharmacies to comply was February 28 2018.

Medical centres, travel agencies, accounting firms, law firms and hardware companies (wholesale and retail) are required to install, implement and operate EFD/VMS on or before June 30, 2018.

Their full contact and accreditation details are available on the FRCS website.
