How to use e-ZEFIR?
In order to access e-ZEFIR and make use of functionalities it offers, it is necessary to create an account on the PUESC portal (click on "Create Account" tab in the upper right corner of the page).
Because of the wide range of electronic services available through the portal, two user access levels to PUESC have been defined:
- Basic access level available mainly to natural persons who mostly send documents in their own name and on their own behalf. This user permission level is sufficient for the submission of declarations, application forms and for the retrieval of the confirmation of excise duty payment.
- Advanced access level available to those who wish to have access to the full scope of portal services, i.e. business owners, proxies, employees of customs agencies or accounting offices acting on behalf of a trader or in their name. At this access level it is possible to define the links between the company (or e.g. a business owner or an individual person using the service) and their representatives on the basis of the power of attorney granted to the representative.
The detailed instructions on how to create an account and register for the use of the portal services are available under e-Customer tab.
