How to give representation rights in the Estonian Tax and Customs Board?

An authorization is a collection of rights within the limits of which a representative may act on behalf of the principal.

It is essential for the Estonian Tax and Customs Board that the content of authorization would be understandable and the person granting the authorization and the authorized person would be identifiable.

The main and also the most convenient and practical way to transfer the right of representation is to do it through a suitable digital identification channel.
