❸ Payment through international transfers
You can also use the service international transfers of your bank. But this is often a rather costly way of paying. Usually both the sending bank and the receiving bank charge for this. We therefore advice you to thoroughly check the transfer costs before paying. Please also make sure that all costs are charged to you and not the receiver. If your payment doesn’t cover all costs you risk fines and interest for late payment.

- IBAN number of your municipality. You can find it here.
- Bic (sometimes called Swift) for Central bank of Kosovo: CBRKXKPRXXX

- Taxpayer number
Please note that it takes at least 5-6 working days before your payment is visible in the property tax it-system.
