In this paper we present a relationship between the algebraic notion of proper system, the geometric notion of contact point and the dynamic notion of Poincaré map for piecewise linear differential systems. This allows to present sufficient conditions (which are also necessary under additional hypotheses) for the existence of Poincaré maps in piecewise linear differential systems. Moreover, an adequate parametrization of the Poincaré maps make such maps invariant under linear transformations.
