Tax Administration’s registers – business

When you are setting up a business, you must enter it in the required registers. However, if you do not start your business operations immediately, you should postpone the registration until you actually start the operations. Keep your registered details up to date, and remember to remove your company from the register if its business operations are terminated.

See instructions for registering your company and removing it from the registers:

Processing times for registration

Entering your company in the Tax Administration’s registers can take up to 3 weeks. See more specific processing times.

If you enter your company in the Trade Register, the matter will first be processed by the Finnish Patent and Registration Office. The Tax Administration will process your notification after this.
