AS OF October 31, 2007, the Tax Office registered 16,834 documents with a qualified electronic signature (QES), the SITA newswire wrote.

According to information published by Disig, which is based on data from the Slovak Tax Directorate in Banská Bystrica, the use of the QES in communication with the Tax Office increased more than 4.5 times compared with last year. By the end of 2006, 3,709 documents with QES were sent to tax offices.

"The gradual increase in public on-line services that use a qualified electronic signature is making it more commonplace and cheaper," Peter Miškovic, head of Disig, told the newswire.

Disig says there are currently three institutions in Slovakia that use the QES to its full extent.

"The Tax Directorate, Customs Directorate and recently also the Commercial Register have replaced some of their steps with electronic forms," the company stated.

Public procurement also operates electronically, and from next year, as much as one third of its purchases will be made electronically.
