In order to start operating and conducting e-commerce, the internet trader (legal entity) must first be registered as a company in the Central Register.
Certain conditions which an offline store must meet do not imply to online store, such as minimum technical requirements and standards of the premises, certain number of employees and fiscal bills and equipment.
Those companies that are already registered in the Central Registry and operate as “offline” traders, but want to expand the way of selling goods and services, do not need to re-register or supplement the registration.
In physical stores, according to the regulations, a certain minimum number of employees is required, which depends on the working hours of the store (one or two shifts). The online store, from a theoretical point of view, can work with only one employee and thus meet the legal requirements, regardless of the fact that the working hours are 24/7, because most of the processes are automated and do not require the work of shift workers.
The internet merchant should not have any fiscal equipment, if the payments are made online.
