Change of address

If your address changes, notify the Register of Associations and separately the Finnish Tax Administration of your new address. Associations cannot notify the Finnish Tax Administration of a change of address in electronic format. Report a change of address using paper form 6214 (YTJ).

Lottery tax

If you organise a lottery, you need to pay lottery tax. Read more about how to report and pay lottery tax.

Tax prepayment

The amount of prepayment is based on estimated taxable profit. If income or expenses differ from the estimate, the prepayment amount should be changed. You can apply for a change in prepayment in MyTax.
