What is taXchain

The system-independent platform “taXchain” helps you to lead your tax and customs function into the future. Therefore, the taXchain platform is constantly growing new use cases to digitalize tax and customs processes.

taXchain, which is based on the futureproof blockchain technology, eliminates paper-based processes while enabling cost savings, compliance, and transparency in your tax and customs processes. And on top of that, you can securely exchange data between companies with the assurance of its originality.

Siemens and Henkel
as taXchain pioneers

The initial partners of the taXchain association, Henkel and Siemens, have joined forces to develop use cases for the use of blockchain technology in the tax and customs function.

Initially, the first practical case was a joint blockchain application for the so-called long-term supplier’s declaration in the sense of Art. 62 UZK-IA in the customs area. Further use cases are to follow in the future.
