The Ministry of Taxation is responsible for the overall tax legislation and benefits through the government's fiscal policy. In the Ministry of Taxation you help to create the foundation for financing Denmark. All citizens, companies and organizations are affected by the tax system every single year, and our work has an impact on the lives of all Danes and on all public funding. We are one of the ministries responsible for most of the parliament's bill, and we are in charge of a complex area that is under great political and media awareness. Under the Ministry of Taxation, three independent authorities belong to which the ministry also supervises: SKAT, Skatteankestyrelsen and Spillemyndigheden.
In 2015 it was decided to stop Tax Collection from the present system EFI at Skat, that has been delayed for several years and due to problems since introduction in 2013. In 2015 a program for a new tax collection system was formed, transforming tax collection by simplifying processes, legislation and introducing a new IT system using a different approach to IT development.
The focus on the new IT system supporting tax are:
- Dialog based tendering process
- Revision of legislation
- Simplification of business processes
- Agile approach to IT development
IT systems and business in tax are old and based on “analog” processes. With introduction of the newest ideas on personal identity and value transfer means better tax systems, better service, more revenue and less fraud.
There are two major case examples where Finland and Estonia both tried to implement Digital ID in their respective countries. However, they had very different experiences and where Finland failed, Estonia managed to successfully implement it. ( article for reference by case in Finland and Estonia ). That raises a question what was the difference and how Denmark can ensure that implementation of Digital ID will be smoothly adopted throughout the whole country.
We image comparative study between two or more countries through change management, technology adoption or other relevant perspectives to understand and suggest a way how Denmark should implement Digital ID.
For this project we seek for talented group of Master Thesis students (or a single student) pursuing education in relevant educational subjects
