Via an efsta online portal those authorized can access the fiscal data protocol (all data required to be recorded) and the operational exceptions protocol (protocol covering unusual events) structured in the formats TXT, HTML, CSV and XML. In addition the accuracy of individual receipts (individual verification) can quickly be checked online with the fiscal signature and the receipt total forming the access code.

 Software for the efsta process and the API connection will be supplied free of charge, operational overhead (system maintenance and upkeep, computer capacity, storage capacity, backup, issuance of individual certificates etc.) will be covered by a small annual fee.

Updates made necessary by possible changes in the law will automatically be made available free of charge.
