When must a declaration of use be submitted?
If you are going to drive the vehicle in Finland before its registration, you must submit a declaration of use. You can submit the declaration either as soon as you import the vehicle or when you start driving it.
When is it not necessary to submit a declaration of use?
- You are not going to register the vehicle in Finland.
- You do not drive the vehicle before registration, you only move it by another means of transport.
- Your situation allows the tax-exempt use of the vehicle. Read more about temporary tax-exempt use.
Keep the confirmation message in your vehicle
After you have submitted the declaration of use, you will receive an automatic e-mail confirmation. Keep the confirmation message with you in the vehicle either as a print-out or in a mobile device. Present the confirmation to authorities supervising traffic if so requested.
The declaration of use is not a car tax return, so remember to file the return as well.
