Claim for adjustment of a registration matter
These instructions concern companies and organisations.
You can claim for adjustment of a decision that concerns your registration in the
- VAT register
- prepayment register
- register of car tax filers
- excise duty register.
Please note that you cannot claim adjustment of a decision that concerns registration as an employer.
What to do before submitting a claim for adjustment
VAT register: First request an appealable registration decision in MyTax. Note that you cannot make a claim for adjustment directly based on the notice of registration that the company or organisation receives from the VAT register.
Once you have received an appealable decision, you can file a claim for adjustment following the instructions given on this page. Go to MyTax
Prepayment register: You can submit a claim for adjustment of a decision according to which the Tax Administration has removed the company or organisation from the prepayment register or decided not to enter it in the register.
Note that you do not need to file a claim for adjustment if the Tax Administration has removed the company or organisation from the register due to negligence. When the company or organisation has remedied the negligence, it can be re-registered. Submit a new registration request to the Tax Administration. Even in the case of repeated negligence, the Tax Administration can re-enter the company in the register within one year from the removal, unless it seems obvious that the negligence will continue.
Excise duty register and register of car tax filers: When a company or an organisation is registered, it is always sent an appealable decision, and it can directly claim adjustment of the decision in accordance with the instructions given on this page.
