Computerisation of contact with officials

The Department of Asylum and Migration Policy continues to work on improving the efficiency of electronic communication.

The Ministry of the Interior has already introduced an electronic system for requesting appointments at the Department of Asylum and Migration Policy and it currently strives for its expansion to include other tasks, such as monitoring the status of the application online and – within a few years – the electronic submission of applications, for which the Ministry of the Interior intends to obtain a grant from the European Union. It will not be possible to use appointments arranged electronically for representing a foreign national based on a power of attorney, i.e. the foreign national will have to attend in person. The number of officials responding to requests on the telephone information line and by email has unfortunately been reduced.

VAT Control Statement has been in operation for almost three years. Did it prove itself in practice?

When the VAT Control Statement was introduced in 2016, many feared the changes that were linked to this new tax report. The transition to the VAT Control Statement that each VAT payer must provide along with the VAT return required a re-arrangement of systems, an adjustment of the accounting policies and an adjustment of the relations with business partners. Now, almost three years later, we can say that the VAT Control Statement partially met the expectations of the professional public. “First of all, we expected an acceleration in the course of inspections because the Tax Administrator has most of the data available from the VAT Control Statement and it was fulfilled,” said Jaroslav Beneš, director of the Tax Advisory team at Deloitte.
