Starting from 2019 all employers must report the salaries, benefits, employment remunerations and other earnings from work to the national Incomes Register. The Incomes Register is a national online database, which contains information on wages and earnings. The incomes register replaces the old system where the same information had to be reported separately to several different government bodies.
Foreign employers must submit earnings payment reports to the Incomes Register in the following situations:
The information in the register will be used by the Finnish Tax Administration, Kela (Social Insurance Institution of Finland), the Employment Fund, earnings-related pension providers and the Finnish Centre for Pensions.
Please note that the reporting obligation is more comprehensive if the company has a permanent establishment in Finland or it has voluntarily registered with the Finnish Tax Administration’s Employer Register.
