The e-service

Within the e-service, data can be submitted to the Incomes Register in two ways: by uploading files or entering the data of a single report to the online form. The login page for the Incomes Register's e-service will be The service will open in 2019. Data cannot be submitted to the Incomes Register from the service. authentication is used to log into the e-service

The authentication shared by the public administration is used to log into the Incomes Register's e-service. The service enables secure electronic authentication with strong means of authentication (online banking codes, mobile certificates, a organisation card and a certificate card). E-service users can submit data to the Incomes Register in accordance with their existing access rights.

Certificate is not used in the e-service

Using the Incomes Register's e-service on a Web browser does not require the organisation to have a certificate. It is enough that the data provider has used strong authentication with the service (with personal online banking codes, a mobile certificate, a organisation card or a certificate card). The data provider must also have sufficient authority to conduct business on behalf of the organisation he or she represents. The Incomes Register thus follows the same principle as the other upload/download services offered by the Tax Administration. Neither the upload/download service nor the online form uses a certificate. A certificate is only needed for the use of the Incomes Register's technical interface.

Earnings payment records can be submitted as files, using the upload/download service

When using the upload/download service, the data provider first generates a record, containing earnings payment reports, from its own payroll administration system. After logging into the Incomes Register's e-service, the data provider uploads the record to the Incomes Register using the upload/download service. The data format of the record uploaded via the upload/download service is XML. The user receives processing feedback for the record from the service.

The data of an individual report can be entered on the online form

The data can also be entered manually using the online form of the Incomes Register's e-service. authentication is required for the data provider. E-service users can submit data to the Incomes Register in accordance with their existing access rights.

Authorise the necessary persons for reporting data from autumn 2018 onwards

You can authorise persons to use the Incomes Register's e-service in the authorisations service. With this service, the Incomes Register can reliably check authorisations, powers of attorney and the rights of private persons and companies to conduct e-service transactions on behalf of another person or company they represent. Authorisations to use the Incomes Register's e-service can be created from autumn 2018 onwards. More information will be available in spring 2018.

The Incomes Register uses its own authorisation codes, which will be published in the authorisations in autumn 2018: the roles Reporting earnings payment data and Browsing earnings payment data, and the roles Reporting benefits payment data and Browsing benefits payment data.

Who can conduct transactions on behalf of a company?

Foreign companies and public administration actors can authorise persons via the Katso service

The authorisation cannot be used in the following cases; the Katso service must be used for the authorisation instead:

  • A foreign company is not registered with the Trade Register or its authorised signatory is a foreign citizen (does not have a Finnish Personal Identification Number).
