VAT payers who were registered on 15 November were required to inform the FS of their bank accounts by 30 November. In order to facilitate this whole process, FS has delivered a pre-filled notice form to each of them in their mailbox within the personal Internet area on the FS portal.
The data will be available from January 1 next year as an online information list, exported from the online information list in XML format and API interface. FS released a production version of the API on its transparent OpenData portal in early December of this year. At the same time, samples of exports were published from the prepared information lists.
An amendment to the VAT Law has made an obligation to notify the FS numbers of domestic and foreign bank accounts used by business VAT payers. By posting the reported bank accounts on the Financial Management (PFS) portal, customers will be able to verify that they are paying for goods or services to an account that the supplier has reported as a business account.
The requirements for the list are regulated by tax law, with respect to the name and surname of a natural person, or the address of his permanent residence or place of business, if it is different from the address of permanent residence. Or the name of the legal entity, the registered office, the taxpayer’s tax identification number, and the account number with the payment service provider or the foreign banking service provider.
Due to the protection of personal data, the data in the new information lists will be published only after the full value of the VAT ID has been entered into the filter. This means that only data from the list of specified information corresponding to the value of the entered VAT ID will be displayed. Viewing the entire list will be possible only with exports from online lists of information, which will be created daily and published on the financial management portal. Export files will be subject to a strict licensing policy.
