Payment in the e-MTA

In the e-MTA under the section "Accounting" > "Payment", it is possible to pay claims or transfer funds to a prepayment account by using a bank link or credit card. A bank link can be used by the customers of SEB Bank, Swedbank, Luminor Bank, LHV Pank and Coop Pank. When you log in to the bank, you have to choose whether you are making the payment as a private client or a business client.

Speed of arrival of payments

In case of intra-bank payments – for SEB Bank, Swedbank, Luminor Bank and LHV Pank – the payment confirmation from the bank will reach the account of the Estonian Tax and Customs Board usually on the day of payment if the payment was made on a working day until 20:00. If the payment was made after 20:00, it will reach the account of the Estonian Tax and Customs Board on the next working day.

If you pay from Coop Pank account, then payments made on a working day before 15:30 will reach the account of the Estonian Tax and Customs Board on the same day and payments entered after 15:30 – on the next working day.

Please ask your bank how fast they transfer money to the receiver’s account.
