The process is carried out by invitation only. It involves both taxpayers and an TA Enrollment Officer TA Enrollment Officer sends invitation to taxpayer. Taxpayer chooses own PIN for smart card and submits enrollment form. PIN is known only to taxpayer, not even the TA can discover it. Personalized smart card created by TA Enrollment Officer. Taxpayer receives e-mail / SMS, and collects smartcard. The taxpayer can now log onto the TA Portal, and submit invoices by their device of choice.
The SE resides on a smart card or in the V-SDC. It consists of software accessible only to the TA. It maintains the integrity of the fiscal data by preventing tampering, zappers, phantomware and unauthorized use of data.
A smart card is a plastic card containing an embedded microprocessor chip that stores and transacts data. TaxCore smart cards contain the taxpayer’s unique ID, an applet for offline invoicing and data registers. It is used with an E-SDC to sign invoices.
This is a digital ID file that is used to connect to a V-SDC, just like a smart card is used with an E-SDC. The taxpayer receives the file via email
Mobile apps are available free of charge on Android and iOS webstores. BYOD (bring-your-own-device)
An audit package is a small data package containing all information on one sales transaction. It is sent to the TaxCore Back Office via the internet or physically, e.g. on a flash drive
When all expected audit packages have been received, TaxCore Back Office checks and records them, and returns a PoA to the taxpayer’s EFD
TaxCore is network independent – built to work in both online and offline environments, with or without the Internet. Remote audit is instantly completed over the Internet; local audit is done manually when the internet is poor or unavailable, via e.g. an SD card or USB flash drive
Secure encryption of audit data prevents access to sales data by unauthorized persons. Audit can be decrypted only by the TA’s TaxCore Back Office
Back Office is the heart of the system. It receives audit packages from taxpayers, checks the data and sends PoA. Back Office records each transaction with a unique ID number, which is printed on the invoice. It provides Tax Inspectors or other TA staff with full insight and many useful features. Back Office drives one or more network operating centers, where wall mounted monitors display charted data in real-time, giving TA executives a running status analysis
The TAP is a portal dedicated to taxpayers. Each taxpayer can log on to a dashboard using their PIN, and view a log of all invoices they have issued. Useful for checking revenue records and for data recovery, e.g. after accidental data loss
Fraud detection by the public eye! Customers and anyone interested can scan and verify any invoice, just as a TA inspector does
Back Office is the heart of the system. It receives audit packages from taxpayers, checks the data and sends PoA.
A reward for users / customers who scan invoices, usually in the form of a ‘scratch-n-win’ lottery with valuable prizes. It incentivizes customers to always demand an invoice
