Income earner's authorisations

Every income earner can only see their own income data in the Incomes Register's e-service. Income earners can perform identification for use of the Incomes Register's e-service on the Suomi.fi website (with online banking codes, a certificate card or a mobile certificate). If they so desire, income earners can also authorise another person or company to conduct business via the Incomes Register on their behalf.

Income earners can authorise another person or company to

  • view their income data in the Incomes Register;
  • send messages related to their income data in the Incomes Register;
  • subscribe for transcripts related to their income data from the Incomes Register; and
  • maintain contact information related to the income data in the Incomes Register.

Authorisations are granted in the Suomi.fi e-Authorisations service. The name of the income earner's authorisation is "Processing incomes payment data". Income earners may grant an authorisation to conduct business with the Incomes Register on their behalf from 8 August 2018.

Persons or companies may also ask income earners for authorisation to conduct business on their behalf with the Incomes Register. The mandate request is made in the Suomi.fi e-Authorisations service. The authorisation can be acted upon after the income earner who received the mandate request has approved it within the Suomi.fi e-Authorisations service. You can perform identification for the service on the Suomi.fi website.

Income earners do not need to authorise their employers or payers. Employers and payers are entitled and obligated, by law, to submit a report to the Incomes Register on any payments they have made.
