Notifications to Finnish Trade Register by 30 November 2020

The number of notifications to the Trade Register increases significantly at the end of the year. Our due date for the receipt of your notifications is therefore Monday 30 November 2020, to make sure that they can be dealt with by 31 December.

Notify in good time about mergers and demergers

Our due date for the receipt of notifications of the implementation of merger or demerger is also 30 November, if you want the implementation to be registered before the end of the year.

Change of financial period: before the present period ends

According to the Finnish Tax Administration’s instructions, businesses must notify the Trade Register of changes in their financial period two months before the present period ends. File your notification online on the website, which is jointly provided by the Finnish Patent and Registration Office (PRH) and the Finnish Tax Administration, or using a paper form (Y form).

However, you cannot file the change online if there is less than two months to the end of the financial period.

The due date for the receipt of paper notifications is 30 November, to make sure that the change can be registered before the end of the year.

In questions about taxation, please contact the Tax Administration for more information.

It is possible to file most notifications with the Trade Register online on the website. Please note that the notifications must be filled in either in Finnish or in Swedish.
