Those of you who are turning 18 will be required by law to obtain a Tax Registration Number, also known as a Tax Identification Number. Regardless of profession, even students.

In fact, the digital convenience offered by the Greek Government forces you to obtain a key number, so that you can apply online to your university and easily provide your original signature, where required.

Digital facilities were developed a year ago, with the COVID-19 pandemic, in order to reduce personal transactions with civil servants and also to reduce the excessive demands of the various services on documents and certificates.

Before COVID-19, if you wanted to get a VAT number for an 18-year-old, you would have to go to your local tax office and the supporting documents under your arm, a request should be submitted to the service, of course filling in all your details. That is, full name, father's and mother's name, address, ID number, email, landline and mobile phone, place and date of birth, marital status, nationality, etc.

All the above information was taken by the employee and passed into their system. With the coronavirus, things became simpler. You can apply online, and then make an appointment for an interview with the tax official via Microsoft Teams from your home. On this date the clerk will certify that you are a real person, the details of the application are true, so it will register you and give you a VAT number.

Όμως θα εκπλαγείτε όταν θα κάνετε κλικ στο σύνδεσμο που θα σας στείλει το για να περάσετε όλα τα παραπάνω ευαίσθητα στοιχεία σας. Είναι αυτός εδώ:

And while you're under the domain of the Greek Government, you will suddenly find yourself on Microsoft's Azure servers !! And you should write all your details there!

So if we understand correctly, the official Greek state uses Microsoft to digitize the financial data of all Greeks.

And the following questions arise:

  • Doesn't the Greek state have its own servers?
  • The famous PAIR design where is it set?
  • And they lost to make a subdomain instead of citizens seeing and freaking out?

What do you answer gentlemen of the Ministry of Digital Governance? The Best Technology Site in Greecefgns
