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. Data cannot be submitted to the Incomes Register from the Ilmoitin.fi service.
Suomi.fi authentication is used to log into the e-service
The Suomi.fi 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 Suomi.fi 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. Suomi.fi authentication is required for the data provider. E-service users can submit data to the Incomes Register in accordance with their existing access rights.
