FinanzOnline: Overview

The FinanzOnline ordinances created the legal basis for FinanzOnline in Austria in 2006. FinanzOnline provides electronic access to the tax authorities for entrepreneurs and their representatives. In addition, FinanzOnline offers round-the-clock access to relevant tax documents without additional software and provides the services of company service portal (USP) services, such as e-Rechnung. FinanzOnline is constantly being developed into an information and transaction portal in tax matters.
