Creating a progressive tax organization with the help of Ortec Finance.
With more than 850,000 inhabitants the city of Amsterdam is by far the largest municipality in the Netherlands. The Directorate of Taxes uses OrtaX.
Ortec Finance was involved in the program Renewal Information Provision Taxes, the VIB process. The purpose of this project was to replace the old taxation system of the city of Amsterdam with a standard package. As part of this project, OrtaX also needed to be upgraded. Upgrading OrtaX was a major project, especially because of the complexity of the WOZ triangle. Thanks to Ortec Finance the process went well. The city of Amsterdam is also very satisfied with the cooperation with Ortec Finance and attaches great importance to the good relationship.
