Report the compensations you have paid for spring chores to the Incomes Register

4/25/2019

Have you hired a cleaner, a window cleaner, a painter, or someone to clean your eaves or build a jetty for your summer cottage? Check whether you need to report to the Incomes Register the compensations you have paid for work done for your home or summer cottage.

The need to report the compensation for work to the Incomes Register depends on whether the compensation is paid to the worker as wages or by means of an invoice.

  • The worker is paid wages.
    • If the compensation for work is paid to the worker as wages, the data must be reported to the Incomes Register.
    • In addition, submit an employer's separate report if you pay more than EUR 1,500 in wages to one worker per year.
    • You can calculate and pay the wages easily using the free-of-charge Palkka.fi service. The data will be transferred automatically to the Incomes Register from the service.

  • The compensation for the work is paid to a company or an entrepreneur by means of an invoice.
    • If the company or entrepreneur is registered in the prepayment register, the data need not be reported to the Incomes Register.
    • If the company or entrepreneur is not registered in the prepayment register, report to the Incomes Register the amount paid for work in the invoice and the reimbursement of travel expenses.
    • You can check whether a company or an entrepreneur is registered in the prepayment register by using the BIS company search (www.ytj.fi/en/).
    • Report the non-wage compensation for work and reimbursement of travel expenses using the income type 336 Non-wage compensation for work.
    • You can report the data in the Incomes Register's e-service at www.incomesregister.fi.
