Inaccurate contact details in the details of a company or association

File a rectification request with the PRH if your address or another contact detail such as your phone number or e-mail address is used in a company or association in which you do not hold a position of responsibility.

You must file the rectification request with the PRH yourself. Another person cannot file the rectification request on your behalf.

Filing the rectification request is free of charge.

We will check the address against the information in the Finnish Population Information System.

Please note: we will not remove the address or another contact detail from the register if you hold a position of responsibility in the company or association in question. For example, a board member may be a person in a position of responsibility.

How to file the rectification request

Use our online form to file the rectification request. We cannot remove inaccurate information if the request is sent by email without using the form.

To log in to the online form, you need to have a Finnish personal identity code and either personal internet banking codes, a mobile certificate or an electronic identity card (HST card).

In addition, you need the following information:

  • Name and Business ID of the company or association
  • Address or other contact detail that has erroneously been registered for the company or association
  • Email address to which we will send the information on the processing of the rectification request
