SRM Software Update

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Click Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) to see whether the measures adopted by Revenu Québec apply to the information on this page.

Upon activation, the latest version of the SRM software will be automatically installed on a new or used sales recording module (SRM).

We recommend that you install the SRM software updates that we develop. Certain updates are mandatory.

Principal changes further to an SRM software update are listed in the table below.

The fact that your sales recording system (cash register or point-of-sale system) is updated (as is done, for example, when the GST or QST rate changes) does not necessarily mean that your SRM software needs to be updated.

You must use the services of an SRM installer authorized by Revenu Québec to update the SRM software. The transaction data recorded in the SRM cannot be lost by updating the software.

To look up the version number of the software currently installed on your SRM, print out the "Informations générales" report by following the instructions in the SRM User Guide (IN-577-V).

For more information, watch our how-to videos on YouTube (available in French only) on YouTube.

2.19

This version of the software:

  • corrects a problem that makes the SRM unable to produce the periodic sales summary.
  • sends messages that are printed by the printer when the SRM's memory is almost full. The message also appears on the display station to inform you that you must free up space in the SRM's memory. You can do this yourself, but only after you make a backup copy of the SRM data on a USB key. 
  • gives your installer another way to put the SRM in installation mode using the display station (installation mode allows the SRM and the ActiMEV software used by the installer to communicate).

If your SRM is accidentally set to installation mode, briefly push the on/off switch and restart the device. The SRM will then be operational.
