Use our services electronically

You can report data in the Incomes Register’s e-service or transfer reports directly from your payment system via an API.

Submitting reports in e-service

In the Incomes Register’s e-service, you can complete one report at a time or send the data as an XML file via the upload service. You can also browse and correct submitted reports and request transcripts.

Log in to the service and read the instructions

Identify yourself in the service using your online banking codes, a mobile certificate or  a certificate card.

You can act on behalf of a company or organisation if you hold the required official role. If you act in any other role, you will need a authorisation.

Use technical interface to automate reporting

Many payroll and benefit software products are able to use the Incomes Register API. If you make payments frequently or to a large number of income earners, using such software will make your job easier.

In addition to reporting, many software products allow you to correct data directly from the payment system to the Incomes Register. You can also request records or transcripts through the API. Ask your software supplier for more information.

For example, service (available in Finnish and Swedish, link to Finnish), a free payroll service, also uses the API solution and automatically sends the necessary reports to the Incomes Register.
