Reduce operating costs and tax risks

He said: "After payment, you can directly invoice on WeChat. , It ’s okay to drink coffee, and it ’s okay to issue a ticket after you leave, it ’s really convenient! ”
A person in charge of Pacific Coffee said that access to blockchain invoices is mainly due to its convenience and stability, while saving store financial costs and improving efficiency are also key factors.

Invoices require the purchase of professional hardware, personal verification of consumer information, etc. When there are many people, invoices are slow and prone to wrong invoices. With blockchain electronic invoices, consumers can obtain invoices themselves, greatly saving merchants' time, hardware and labor costs.
Because Shenzhen Blockchain electronic invoices achieve "real-time invoicing", enterprises can implement billing statistics, transaction reconciliation and other functions on the blockchain invoice background. In addition, the blockchain electronic invoice can also be connected to the company's financial software to achieve real-time statistics and calculations, which is true and credible, and can also be extended to tax declarations.
For consumers, after the transaction is completed, they can apply for self-invoicing through the mobile phone WeChat function, and the blockchain electronic invoice can be uploaded to the corporate financial system with one click, and the reimbursement becomes simpler. “Transaction is invoicing and invoicing is reimbursed” .
The blockchain electronic invoice connects each invoice stakeholder to facilitate the traceability of the invoice source, authenticity, and reimbursement information. It can solve problems such as overvoting, false reporting, and difficulty in authenticity verification in the process of invoice circulation. Significantly reduce operating costs and tax risks.
