Filing financial statements with tax returns with the Finnish Trade Register
You can file your financial statements with your tax return if your company type is any of the following:
- limited liability company
- co-operative bank or savings bank or
- mutual insurance company.
Other company types file their financial statements directly with the Finnish Trade Register. Select your company type from the menu for instructions on how to file financial statements with the Trade Register.
Do not file the financial statements with the Trade Register until they are approved
File the financial statements directly with the Finnish Trade Register using our online service at ytj.fi when the general meeting has approved the financial statements. The online service is available in Finnish and in Swedish. This ensures that the PRH receives all the necessary financial statement documents for the Trade Register at the same time.
Follow the Tax Administration's instructions carefully when filing the financial statements with tax returns
The financial statements will only be sent the Tax Administration to the PRH Trade Register if you follow the Tax Administration’s instructions carefully.
Once the financial statements have been filed exactly as instructed by the Tax Administration, the statements are sent to the Trade Register in about a week.
The Tax Administration gives advice on how to file your tax return and how to enclose your financial statement documents with it. Go to the Tax Administration’s instructions about filing financial statements at vero.fi.Open link in a new tab
What happens after registration?
As soon as the financial statements have been registered, a register extract will be sent to the company’s address, as recorded in the Finnish Business Information System (BIS).
The details in the financial statements are publicly available on the PRH Virre Information Service. Go to the Virre service.Open link in a new tab
