Payer's suborganisation

A suborganisation is part of an organisation established by the payer for a specific function or purpose. If the organisation has a suborganisation identifier, report the payer’s suborganisation. With a suborganisation identifier, the payer can divide the organisation into different parts.

Suborganisation data is mandatory if

  • the payer has a suborganisation in accordance with Keva's submitter codes or 
  • the payer is a governmental institution.

Select Payer's own codes if the suborganisation identifier is formed by the organisation. The identifier may be formed in the Suomi.fi e-Authorisations service or the Katso service for use in establishing defining specifiers for access to the data in the Incomes Register, or it may be an alternative method of classifying reports needed by the payer.

Keva's submitter codes are used by Kela and municipal, state and church employers who have unique submitter codes issued by Keva for itemising the earnings payment reports of their different departments and agencies.

Government agency identifier: The identifier is used in state administration, where different government agencies have their own identifiers.

There can only be one suborganisation identifier of the same type. To add more than one suborganisation, click Add suborganisation.
