YEREVAN, July 10/ARKA/. The number of cash register receipts printed in Armenia in the first half of the year increased by more than 40% from the year before, David Ananyan, the head of the State Revenue Committee, told reporters on Tuesday, specifying that over 196 million receipts were printed in the first six months of 2019.
He said also that in the first half of 2019, the amount of cash register receipts increased by 21% or 145.9 million drams to the overall to 831.1 million drams. At the same time, he stressed that many local compressed gas and petrol filling stations fail to provide receipts.
Ananyan said the State Revenue Committee initiated a meeting with their owners to convey its concerns and it turned out that the owners apply internal sanctions against those employees who refuse to issue receipts.
“The problem is that surpluses generate at these stations which employees sell to motorists without providing cash register receipts and many owners are unaware of this turnover,” said Ananyan, stressing that relevant work is being done in this direction.
According to Ananyan, the highest number of cash register receipts were printed in May -38 million. In June the turnover of printed receipts grew to 160.8 million drams. ($ 1 – dram 476.9).
