The flagship measure to combat undeclared earnings, electronic cash registers, began to take effect across the Czech Republic on Thursday. The measure has been pushed by finance minister and ANO leader Andrej Babiš against opposition from the centre-right opposition. In the first wave, the measure applies to hotels and restaurants covering an estimated 40,000 businesses. It will be widened out to the rest of the economy in the following years. After heated discussion over last minute moves to water down the measure within the government coalition, Babiš now says that it will go ahead as originally planned.
