With the Fourth Industrial, i.e. Digital Revolution, we have a chance to make up for lagging behind and catch up with more developed countries. This technological revolution will fundamentally change our lives, it is inevitable and unstoppable. Only winning societies choose to welcome changes, they do not averse from them. The Serbian Government believes that Serbia is ready to lead the entire region in changes that will follow and creation of new possibilities for all. The digitization process will enhance the standard and quality of life for hundreds of thousands of Serbian citizens. Efficiency will be increased, costs will be reduced and new value will be created in almost all areas of life and work. The digitization process is the most important catalyst of innovations, competitiveness and growth.
The eTaxes portal is an electronic service of the Serbian Tax Administration. This portal represents yet another step towards digitization which was initiated by the Serbian Government.
The system allows all taxpayers to submit electronically signed tax return forms, to monitor status of sent returns, to view balance on their accounts, and to know whether they are authorized to use the service or not.
The aim of establishing eTaxes portal is faster, easier and simpler payment of taxes. The system is safe and enables safe electronic transmission of data.
The results of introducing electronic services can be best seen in statistics – from the commencement of full application of electronic submission of tax returns, ending with 31/05/2018, a total of 22 million tax returns were submitted and processed.
Electronic tax returns in 2018:
- monthly: 525,000 returns,
- daily: 17,500 returns,
- record 15 January 2018 – more than 73,000 returns.
