Opening hours of tax offices have been restricted. We do not recommend visiting tax offices.

When you arrive in Finland to do construction or installation work, you must get registered at a tax office and get a tax number as soon as possible. If you do not have a tax number, you cannot work on the construction site. You must have an identification card with your name, picture and tax number.

If you are looking to hire construction workers, see the instructions for employers.
