From now on you can order e-invoice for land tax payment
A new upgrade has been completed in the e-Tax/e-Customs which from now on enables to order an e-invoice for the payment of land tax. The first time this possibility can be used is the 1st of October, which is the due date for the payment of land tax.
E-invoices can be ordered in an internet bank, on the webpage of arved.ee or in the e-Tax/e-Customs portal in the section “Claims and liabilities” through the menu item “e-invoice ordering”. The subscription will also be valid for subsequent land tax claims, the annual due dates of which are March 31st and October 1st. E-invoices are sent to banks 11 days before the due date to the clients who have a valid subscription of e-invoice in the e-Tax/e-Customs.
Since from 1 July 2019 state authorities in Estonia accept only e-invoices and more and more other sectors are also gradually switching to digital invoices, the Tax and Customs Board provides this new service so that its customers can fulfil their tax liabilities in a convenient and contactless way from this time onward. E-invoice is a handy way of paying land tax by due date, avoiding failures to meet deadlines and interests resulting therefrom.
The upgrade of the land tax e-service was financed by the European Regional Development Fund. The service was developed in collaboration between the Tax and Customs Board, Information Technology Centre of the Ministry of Finance, Icefire, Nortal and Velvet.
The Estonian Tax and Customs Board (ETCB) calls on companies that have fallen into difficulties in paying taxes in the period of the emergency situation and cannot afford to pay the full amount of taxes they owe to apply for payment by instalments through the e-MTA. After the end of the emergency situation, interests will be charged again on tax arrears that are not rescheduled.
In order to alleviate the financial situation of companies, the Estonian Tax and Customs Board (ETCB) suspends the calculation of interests on their tax arrears for the period of emergency with retroactive effect as from 1 March to 1 May. However, all tax returns must be submitted on time and taxes must be paid whenever it is possible.
