Domestic software companies in Croatia claim that they get less than ten orders for new cash registers and new law-compatible software installations per day. Thousands of bar and restaurant owners, small business owners and craftsmen have shown almost no interest in acquiring cash registers, despite Finance Minister Slavko Linic's announcement that they will have to be operational by the start of 2013. Croatian IT companies claim it is questionable if such a large number of software and hardware installations can be done in such a short period.

On 25 September 2012, the Croatian Parliament discussed the new Bill. The first reading was over two hours long, which by itself demonstrates its seriousness and the opposing views of the government and the opposition. The opposition's main complaint was that the Bill will create millions of kunas in expenses for the subjects to fiscalization, while the proposing side argues that the total sum will be between two and three thousand kunas per subject. The only thing that is certain is that IT companies will benefit significantly thanks to the introduction of fiscalization, while the users will have to endure significant costs.
