Electronic signature in practice
Regulation of qualified electronic signature was passed in Slovakia in 2002 (act No. 215/2002 Coll on Electronic Signature and on the amendment and supplementing of certain acts). Nowadays, electronic signatures with time-stamps are equivalent to handwritten signatures on paper documents.
Electronically, using electronic signatures, it is possible to interact with the courts of the Slovak Republic, the Commercial register of Slovak Republic, Slovak land register, Tax offices and Customs services.
Electronic communication (sending different types of filings, including their attachments as well as receiving court administration and administration of other state bodies) with public authorities is made directly from our law office, without the need of postal services. So that it saves time and money of our clients.
