As of 12 May 2014 notifications to the Trade Register are processed using a new data system. The system transfer on 2-9 May caused interruptions to our services. Meanwhile, both the PRH and the local register offices continued to accept notifications, but they could not be processed immediately. This means the Trade Register procedure will be slower than usual in May.
We apologise for the delay.

Processing time means the time from the filing of a notification or an application to the first communication from our office to the client. The first communication can be
- a decision of registration,
- a telephone call, or
- a request or invitation in writing to correct the notification or application.
The estimated processing time does not promise to process the matter within the time indicated but rather is an estimate that may change according to the processing status.
Is it possible to speed up the process? Can I request a certain registration date?
We process notifications in order of arrival, and exceptions to this order are made only for weighty reasons. The quickest route is to send your notification by post.
If there is a specific reason why your notification should be registered as soon as possible, you can submit such a request to the Trade Register. The request must always be submitted in writing, and it must include at least the company’s Business ID, the company name, details of the notification in question, and the reason why it should be registered as soon as possible. You can also send the request after you have submitted your notification to the register. Send the request by email to registry(a)prh.fi.
If your notification should be registered on a certain day, please submit your request in writing, for example by indicating your request in the ‘Lisätietoja / Additional information’ field on the notification form.
Please note that requests submitted on the pages of the notification form that are only used by the tax authority, do not come to the notice of the Trade Register.
We observe the requests whenever possible, but cannot, however, answer your requests separately.
