Employees’ periods of stay in Finland are reported on the same report. Submit the NT data by the fifth calendar day following the first payment of wages for work performed abroad. Report employees’ periods of stay in Finland by the end of January in the year following the payment year.

Employee leasing notice (foreign employer): Report data on a foreign leased employee whom you have leased for a service recipient operating in Finland. The report must be submitted regardless of the duration of work. Submit the report by the fifth calendar day following the first payday.

Benefits payment report: Report the benefits or pensions paid to a single income earner on the same payment date using a benefits payment report.
