Please consider the following tips and advice when making payments to tax offices

 

According to the Federal Ministry of Finance, payments to these closed accounts will no longer be executed but returned to the account of the party ordering the credit transfer as of 1 October 2021.

  • AT92 0100 0000 0550 4044
  • AT68 0100 0000 0550 4185
  • AT65 0100 0000 0550 4336
  • AT26 0100 0000 0556 4596
  • AT73 0100 0000 0553 4650
  • AT36 0100 0000 0554 4822
  • AT37 0100 0000 0557 4971

The same applies for any payment orders to old accounts with IBANs that still include the sort code 60000. Here is an example of an IBAN that contains the sort code 60000: AT00 6000 0123 4567 8910

Effective immediately, please make payments to the tax office using only valid IBANs as defined by the Federal Ministry of Finance.

Manual entry as an individual order

The intelligent transfer feature in George also supports structured tax office payments.

All you need to do is enter the name of the tax office you wish to transfer the funds to in the payment order form and the system will add the public contact details of that tax office along with their IBANs.
Simply select a tax office and the system will automatically populate the payment order with the required data.

Templates and your personal contacts

If you have previously created templates or personal contacts for tax office payments, then please check the IBAN and replace it with the updated IBAN if necessary.

You will find the master data of your personal templates and contacts at 'Settings / Contacts & Templates'. 

In this case, the tax office payments are created in your systems, e.g. in the accounting software, and transmitted to the data carrier. The George plugin does not check whether the tax office's account details are up-to-date when importing the data carrier.

Therefore, please check the relevant master data directly in the source system where you create the data carrier. 

Manual entry as an individual order

When your taxpayer identification number is entered in the form specially provided for tax office payments, the relevant tax office is automatically selected. If the selected tax office is not the appropriate tax office, you can select the correct tax office from the list.

The current account details are always automatically saved for all the tax offices available in Telebanking Pro.

Templates and pending orders

Generally, Telebanking Pro automatically updates templates or pending orders previously prepared for tax office payments to ensure they have the current account details for the selected tax office as soon as these change.

Nevertheless, to be on the safe side, please check your templates and pending tax office payments to ensure they are correct.

Importing data carriers

In this case, the tax office payments are created in your systems, e.g. in the accounting department's system, and transmitted to the data carrier. Telebanking Pro does not check whether the tax office's account details are up-to-date when importing the data carrier.

Therefore, please check the relevant master data directly in the source system where you create the data carrier. 

Manual entry as an individual order

When manually entering the details for a tax office payment in the appropriate form in telebanking MBS, a list appears with the currently available tax offices. When the appropriate tax office is selected, the form is automatically populated with the currently applicable account details of that tax office.

In the MBS clients of other banks, the procedure should be identical. If you have any questions, we recommend you get in touch with the technical support of your main credit institution.

Templates and pending orders

If you have created templates or prepared orders for payments to a tax office in telebanking MBS that you have never before transmitted to the bank server, they will be automatically corrected.

If you are using the MBS client of another bank, you will likely also have to review and correct the data manually

At any rate, make sure to check your templates and pending tax office payments to ensure they are correct.

Importing data carriers

In this case, the tax office payments are created in your systems, e.g. in the accounting department's system, and transferred to the data carrier. Telebanking MBS does not check whether the tax office's account details are up-to-date when importing the data carrier.

Therefore, please check the relevant master data directly in the source system where you create the data carrier.

If you are using the MBS client of another bank, we recommend you get in touch with the technical support of your main credit institution.
