File financial statements with the Finnish Trade Register (only in Finnish or Swedish)

Filing financial statements with the Trade Register

The law requires companies to file their financial statements. Companies must also make sure that all financial statement documents required by law are being filed.

File the financial statements with the Finnish Trade Register even if your company has stopped business activities. Do not file unapproved or unadopted financial statements with the register.

The PRH will record that the financial statements have been registered in the company’s Trade Register details. Once your financial statements have been registered, you will receive a register extract to your company’s mailing address recorded in the Finnish Business Information System at ytj.fi.

The financial statement documents are available from the PRH Virre Information Service.
