Notification of termination - limited liability companies

According to law, a limited liability company cannot be informally dissolved. Instead it can only be dissolved by liquidation or bankruptcy. Read the instructions on the PRH website.

File a notification of termination to the Trade Register using a paper form

A limited liability company is deemed to have been dissolved once the liquidators have presented the final accounts to the General Meeting. File a notification of termination of a limited liability company to the Trade Register using form Y4 and appendix form 15 (available only in Finnish and in Swedish). Use form Y4 also for filing notifications to the Tax Administration’s Employer Register, Prepayment Register and VAT Register.

It is not yet possible for limited liability companies to report notifications of termination online.

Please scroll down for the forms and instructions. Fill in the form - either in Finnish or in Swedish - on your computer, then print it at A4 size, and send it to the address given on the form.

Please fill in the forms in Finnish or in Swedish.

  • To notify termination only with the Tax Administration, use form Y4.
