Tax Service: eHerkenning EH3 login
What is eHerkenning?
eHerkenning is a standardised login system that gives you access to the online services of 400-plus organisations. Most of the service providers are government bodies. However, eHerkenning is now used by more and more private organisations as well, including insurers and pension funds.
eHerkenning is like DigiD, but for businesses. An eHerkenning token enables business users to access the services of affiliated public and private-sector service providers and safely exchange confidential data. The higher the assurance level of the token, the more sensitive the information you can share. Level-3 eHerkenning (EH3) is increasingly the norm. With an EH3 token, you have access not only to services for which EH3 is required, but also to all lower-level services.

Tax Service eHerkenning 3: only for returns
Is submitting your tax return the only thing you need eHerkenning for? You can now submit returns using Tax Service eHerkenning 3.
The token is also cheaper than an ordinary EH3 token. However, because the use of a Tax Service eHerkenning 3 token has limitations, most users prefer to have an ordinary EH3 token.
EH3 chain authorisations
For Tax Service access, you can choose between a single-authorisation and a multi-authorisation set-up. If, for example, you want to submit wages tax returns via the Tax Service’s business portal, you need an EH3 eHerkenning token. An increasing number of online services require at least EH3 assurance.
However, an exception is made for employers that use an outside agent or professional bookkeeping software to submit their returns. An employer that does that can make a ‘chain authorisation’, allowing their agent or software service provider to make submissions for them.
