Lithuanian governmental organization is planning to develop a virtual fiscal e-service. The organization is looking for an innovative solution for the decentralized transmission of fiscal data, ensuring its irreplaceability, traceability and reliability. Potential cooperation types might be licence or technical cooperation agreement.
Lithuanian governmental organization is the tax administrator in Lithuania. A state institution founded under the Ministry of Finance, which is financed from the state budget and other funds and is accountable to the Minister of Finance.
Lithuanian governmental organization plans to develop a virtual fiscal e-service. It is desired that this service would be implemented through decentralized data transfer nodes (servers), and that the managers of these nodes would be not only the Inspectorate, but also other economic entities operating in one system.
In the development of this system, a problem is encountered when the connection between the payment instrument (analogous to the cash register) and the data transfer node (server) is lost. The organization seeks to assess the technological ways of managing this problem
In the future, with the introduction of the virtual taxation service, the tax administrator will be able to automatically obtain information on actual economic transactions (fiscal sales data of goods / services) for tax administration purposes.
Possible type of partnerships between selected start-ups or growth companies may be for example licence agreement (buy a license) and technical cooperation agreement (need a technology to be developed).
IMPORTANT NOTE: This technology request is part of an innovation challenge and is published on an open innovation platform. The innovation challenge is focused on encouraging the creation and use of innovative solutions for the government. The application deadline is April 3rd. If a company/startup/innovator expresses interest in cooperation with this Lithuanian organization before closing date, it will be guided towards this open innovation platform where it can submit a proposal.
- Type of partner sought: The scale of the challenge is limited to the case where virtual fiscalisation operates online.
The challenge must be focused exclusively on software, the proposed solutions cannot be based on the use of additional hardware (analogous to the fiscal blocks used in cash registers)
The solution must be easily adaptable to integration with a decentralized data supply-acquisition node based on DLT (distributed ledger) technology
The use of data signing certificates must also be ensured for the protection of fiscal data.
- Specific area of activity of the partner: Lithuanian governmental organization is looking for start-ups and SMEs with ideas that fit the conditions of the desired solution outlined through this challenge.
The cooperation model may vary and might be, for example, license agreement or technical cooperation agreement. However, the exact form of cooperation shall be defined between the partners.
