How to use e-services

The e-services of the Estonian Tax and Customs Board are available in the e-service environment e-MTA.

The Estonian Tax and Customs Board’s environment of e-services shall be used in accordance with the procedure established by regulation No. 15 of the Minister of Finance of 14 March 2019.

Introduction to e-MTA

Information about the use of the e-service environment as a private person is displayed to each user when entering the e-MTA for the first time. If the user also holds the right of representation of a legal person or receives it later, information about the use of the e-service environment as a legal person is also displayed to the user.

The information will also be available under Settings – Information about the use of e-MTA portal.

After signing in to the e-MTA, a dashboard is displayed first, providing users with a clear overview of their (and represented persons’) tax and customs information and prospective liabilities.

Users have the opportunity to design their own dashboard. It is possible to give priority to the most used content blocks and to change the number and choice of columns displayed in the tables.

Authentication methods

You can sign in to the e-MTA using the following authentication methods:

  • ID-card
  • Mobile-ID
  • Smart-ID
  • Bank link (Swedbank, SEB, LHV, Coop pank, Luminor)
  • EU e-ID

E-MTA user account

An e-MTA user account is created automatically for every person with an Estonian personal identification code. For non-residents who do not have the Estonian personal identification code, the user account is created based on the information obtained from a first successful authentication in the e-MTA. More information in the article "Information for non-residents for using e-services".

User account details can be found in the e-MTA under Settings - User account.

Granting of access permissions

In order to use the e-services (on behalf of both yourself and persons you represent) in the e-service environment, users must have access permissions. We grant access permissions to the legal representative of a legal person on the basis of data contained in the commercial register, to other representatives on the basis of an authorisation.
