A shift in tax laws is underway, one that will affect bars and restaurants across the province. From the established MEV model to the innovative Web-SRM system, these changes carry significant implications for the way businesses record sales and comply with tax regulations.

This blog post is your essential guide to understanding these changes, equipping your business with the knowledge and tools needed to seamlessly adapt and stay ahead.

From MEV to Web-SRM: What's Changing?

For years, bars and restaurants in Quebec operated under the MEV (Module d’Enregistrement des Ventes) model. The MEV system mandated every restaurant and bar to record all transactions using a sales recording module, thereby ensuring transparency and adherence to tax norms.

However, the recent shift to the Web-SRM system marks a significant departure from this traditional model. The new Web-based Sales Recording Module aims to make the tax recording process more efficient and transparent, leveraging digital infrastructure to its fullest.

The most noteworthy features of the Web-SRM system include:

  • Real-time Tracking: Sales can be recorded and monitored in real-time, allowing for more accurate and immediate insights into transactions.
  • Enhanced Security: Digital encryption ensures that data remains secure, mitigating risks associated with potential breaches.
  • Ease of Integration: The new system seamlessly integrates with various POS systems, reducing the hassles of migration.

Navigating the Change: The Importance of Compatible Equipment

With the Web-SRM system in place, the spotlight shines on having POS equipment that’s not just efficient but also compliant. Non-compliance can lead to hefty fines and potential legal ramifications. Therefore, businesses must assess and update their POS equipment.

With the spotlight now on efficient and compliant point-of-sale systems in Quebec, the need for updated, top-notch printers has never been more critical. Star Micronics understands this need and recommends a range of printers designed for excellence and adaptability.
