Registering the executive committee and filing changes using a paper form

You can file the association’s executive committee and its changes also online. It is cheaper and faster to file online than by using paper forms. Read our instructions on how to file a notification of changes online.

Please note that the online filing service is only available in Finnish and in Swedish.

Filing changes to the members of the executive committee will not change the details about the persons entitled to sign for the association. If the committee members also have the right to sign for the association, submit a notification of changes about the persons entitled to sign for the association, if necessary. Go to our instructions on filing changes to the chairperson and other persons entitled to sign for the association.

When do I file the notification?

Registering the executive committee of an association is voluntary. If the executive committee of the association is registered in the Register of Associations, file a notification of changes every time there are changes to the composition of the executive committee, or if the association wants to deregister the committee’s details.

File the changes without delay.

Who files the notification?

The notification must be signed by the chairperson of the association’s executive committee, an adult member of the executive committee filed with the Register of Associations, or a person authorised by either of the persons mentioned above.

If an authorised person signs the notification, enclose a certified copy of a special power of attorney or the original general power of attorney.

What does it cost to file using paper forms?

Using a paper form, a notification of changes to the executive committee costs 40 euros.

At the same time, you can file changes of persons entitled to sign for the association without any additional fee. Read more about filing details of persons entitled to sign for the association.

Pay the handling fee before filing the notification and enclose the receipt with the notification. See our price list and payment instructions.

How to file the notification using paper forms

Fill in and print out the paper form. First, read the instructions on the last page of the form. Please note that the forms are only available in Finnish and in Swedish.

Go to the forms at ytj.fi: Notification of changes for associations (including form Y4a, appendix form 19A and personal data form).

Enclose the receipt of the handling fee with the notification, and the power of attorney if an authorised person signs the notification.

Send your paper notification to us within a week after the payment to avoid delay in processing the notification.

Send the notification and any enclosed documents by post to:

Finnish Patent and Registration Office (PRH) – Finnish Tax Administration
Business Information System
