New service from 3 September 2018 for those filing notifications with the Finnish Trade Register: Confirmation of registration immediately by email

Through our new service, your company or housing company will receive an email message immediately after we have registered your notification in the Trade Register. The email does not include any of the registered details, but you will be able to see them in a Trade Register extract that we will send separately by post. The email message is in Finnish and Swedish. Click here to see what the message looks like.

The service will be available from 3 September 2018 and it is free of charge.

Message primarily to the provider of further information – and secondarily to the company’s address shown at

The message will be sent automatically and primarily to the party who can provide further information about the notification, if you have given their email address in the notification and the address is active.

If you have not given the email address in the notification, the message will be sent to your company’s address that has been entered into the Finnish Business Information System (BIS) at, which is jointly provided by the Finnish Patent and Registration Office (PRH) and the Finnish Tax Administration.

The Trade Register is maintained by the PRH

The Finnish Trade Register is a public register containing information about companies and housing companies. As a rule, all companies have to be registered at the Trade Register. Companies also have to inform the register of any changes to their registered details. Limited liability companies and co-operatives must file their financial statements with the Trade Register.
