Frequently asked questions
To get online banking codes you must sign an agreement with your bank. Note that only personal online banking codes enable you to log in to our e-services.
A mobile certificate is an identifier in your mobile phone’s SIM card.
If the mobile certificate is in an employee’s business phone, it is not regarded as taxable income for the employee. If the certificate is in the employee’s private phone and is used for business purposes, the employer must give the employee a tax-exempt reimbursement for the expense against a receipt.
A certificate card is an ID card containing a citizen certificate or an organisation card containing an organisation certificate. ID cards are issued by the police, whereas organisation cards are issued by the Population Register Centre.
If the employer acquires an ID card for an employee, the card is regarded as taxable earned income for the employee. An organisation card, on the other hand, is not regarded as taxable income. If the employer has bought a card reader and it will remain in the employer’s use, the reader is not regarded as a taxable benefit for the employee.
