Financial difficulties – business taxpayers, companies, corporate entities

If you are behind in your payments, the Tax Administration will send you a reminder. If you are unable to pay the tax by the due date given in the reminder, you can ask for an extension of due date.

With the reminder, you get additional time to pay

As part of the monthly summary in MyTax, a reminder is sent about the self-assessed taxes and income taxes for corporate entities and benefits under joint administration. The summary indicates the due date for paying the tax. In addition, the reminder tells what is the consequence of not paying by the extended due date. The summary may also contain a notice on transfer to enforcement. You can check the exact amount to pay, including interest, in MyTax.

The Tax Administration sends a separate reminder on unpaid real estate tax, transfer tax, car tax or excise duty. The sum total contains a penalty interest that has accrued up to the due date of the reminder.
