Authorisation

Why do I need Suomi.fi e-Authorisations for in the Incomes Register?

In the Incomes Register, you can with Suomi.fi e-Authorisations authorise another person or organisation to act on your behalf, either in the Reporting earnings payment data or the Browsing earnings payment data role. You will need an authorisation to use the e-service on behalf of another person. If you are using the interface to submit earnings payment reports, you will not need Suomi.fi e-Authorisations.

You can authorise someone for two roles: In the Reporting earnings payment data role, the assignee can maintain the assignor’s basic data and earnings payment reports, submit earnings payment reports produced by the assignor and request statements on behalf of the assignor.

In the Browsing earnings payment data role, the assignee can view the assignor’s basic data, earnings payment reports, statements on the assignor, messages sent and received by the assignor and archived documents.

When does Suomi.fi e-Authorisations become available?

Company signatories can assign companies or individuals to the Browsing earnings payment data and the Reporting earnings payment data roles from 8 August 2018, using the Suomi.fi e-Authorisations service: https://www.suomi.fi/e-authorizations-identification.

If you are a signatory for your company, you can use the Incomes Register e-service as your company’s representative. Your authority to sign for your company will be checked from the Business Information System or the Trade Register. Signatories can authorise companies or individuals to the Incomes Register Browsing earnings payment data and Reporting earnings payment data roles.

What is Suomi.fi e-Authorisations?

With Suomi.fi e-Authorisations you can reliably check a person’s or company’s authorisations and authority to conduct e-service transactions on behalf of another person or a company they represent, irrespective of time and place.

  • are a building manager with a right to sign for the company
  • are a signatory
  • have been given the authorisation by a managing director or signatory: the right to grant a mandate or the representative’s right to grant a mandat

Will Suomi.fi e-Authorisations enable conducting transactions on behalf of a decedent’s estate?

Currently, it is not possible to conduct transactions via the service on behalf of a decedent’s estate. For the representation of decedent’s estates, it is difficult to find up-to-date and accurate information on the parties to the estate, if the information has changed. In the Incomes Register, persons conducting transactions on behalf of a decedent’s estate must be given authorisations in Katso.

If the accounting firm uses the technical interface (using a certificate) to submit earnings payment data, will Suomi.fi e-Authorisations be needed at any stage?

To subscribe to a certificate, the accounting firm must access the Incomes Register e-service. Once it has received the certificate, the technical interface can be used without Suomi.fi e-Authorisations.

Certificates are mentioned in connection with the technical interface. Where do I get a certificate?

Applications for using the technical interface can be made via the Incomes Register’s e-service as of 1 November 2018. You subscribe for a certificate at the same time. On the basis of the certificate subscription, the technical contact person assigned by the organisation will receive the transfer IDs for requesting the certificate.

Can an accounting firm submit any client’s earnings payment report via the technical interface without authorisations and using only the certificate?

Yes, an accounting firm can submit any client’s earnings payment reports by using the certificate.

Who can subscribe for a certificate?

A certificate can be generated by a client who has signed a service contract for the use of the technical interface with the Incomes Register in the Incomes Register e-service.
