Notification on termination of business – farmers and forest owners

Farmers are agricultural operators. Agricultural operators include self-employed individuals conducting agricultural and forestry operations, spouses conducting such operations together, and estates of deceased people conducting such operations.

Forest owners, or forestry operators, are private individuals, estates or spouses owning forest together.

Farmers and forest owners that wind up their operations must submit a notification on termination of business to the Finnish Tax Administration. If the farmer/forest owner has a company name registered in the Trade Register, the same notification form is used in order to inform the Finnish Patent and Registration Office of the termination.

Submit a notification of termination without delay.

The notification is free of charge.
