Foundations: how to grant a Suomi.fi authorisation for tax matters

If you are listed in the Trade Register as the chair of the foundation’s Board of Directors, or if you have the right to sign for the foundation alone, you can use MyTax and take care of the foundation’s tax matters without a separate authorisation.

You will need personal online banking codes, a mobile certificate or a certificate card for granting authorisations and using e-services.

The information recorded in the Trade Register determines how the foundation can authorise individuals or companies to take care of its tax matters.

Foundation is in the Trade Register
You are listed as the chair of the Board of Directors or as having the right to sign for the foundation alone. The foundation can also grant authorisations if the Board together have the right to sign for the foundation.

Foundation is not in the Trade Register
No one is listed in the Trade Register as the chair of the Board of Directors or as having the right to sign for the foundation alone.

How to grant an authorisation if the foundation is in the Trade Register and you have the right to sign for the foundation alone

1

Select one or multiple authorisations

The “Managing of tax affairs” authorisation enables the authorised party to take care of all of the authorising party’s tax matters. Other authorisations only cover certain individual matters.
