POS Invoice (Kenya)

POS is an acronym for Point of Sale. Point of Sale could mean a retail shop, a check-out counter in a shop or any other location, where a sales transaction takes place. The various POS equipment used in retail outlets are Cash registers, card readers, and barcode scanners.

POS acts as a computerized Cash Register that adds the sales total, computes the State sales tax or VAT, calculates the change from the money tendered and automatically adjusts the store’s inventory to debit the amount of inventory sold.

Note : From 01-04-2020 the general VAT rate has been changed from 16% to 14%.
