Notification of changes - housing companies

If changes occur within your company, you must immediately file a notification of changes with us to keep your company records up to date in the PRH Trade Register, and in the VAT Register, Prepayment Register and Employer Register at the Finnish Tax Administration.

Companies set up from 2 January 2019

The basic details of a housing company are transferred automatically to the Tax Administration after the PRH has registered the company with the Trade Register (from February 2019).

After this, the company can be filed with the VAT Register, Employer Register, and Prepayment Register, which are maintained by the Tax Administration. File a notification of changes in the online service at ytj.fi or by using a paper form.

Please note that the online filing is only available in Finnish and in Swedish.

Prices

Most notifications of change to the Trade Register are subject to a fee. It is however free of charge to file changes to your address or contact details, and file a notification of termination of appointment. See the prices at prh.fi.

When filing online, the service will calculate the handling fee for you. A housing company can pay in the online service with internet banking codes or by credit card or give an online invoicing address.
