The Estonian Tax and Customs Board (ETCB) reminds that October 1st is the deadline for the payment of land tax, and an update which enables taxpayers to order e-invoices for land tax payments is ready in the e-MTA.
E-invoices can be ordered in an internet bank, on the website arved.ee and in the e-MTA under “Accounting“ - “Ordering e-invoices”. When making an e-invoice order, you need to use an e-MTA prepayment account reference number, which can be found in your land tax notice or via Search of personal reference number on the ETCB website. The order will also be valid for subsequent land tax claims, the annual due dates of which are March 31st and October 1st. Transmission of e-invoices to banks will be started from 20 September 2019 to the clients who have a valid e-invoice order.
Evelyn Liivamägi, Head of Taxes Department, said that this new service of ETCB enables taxpayers to fulfil their future land tax liabilities in due time and in a convenient and contactless way. „Introduction of e-invoices helps us meet the target of providing our clients with as user –friendly services as possible in fulfilling their tax liabilities,“ Liivamägi added.
The land tax e-invoices update was financed by the European Regional Development Fund. The service was developed in collaboration between the Estonian 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.
