Notification of termination - religious communities and local communities

Religious communities and registered local communities cannot be dissolved informally. Instead, they must be dissolved by liquidation.

File a notification of dissolution (termination) with the Register of Religious Communities once the liquidation proceedings have been completed.

Filing the notification with both the PRH and the Tax Administration is only possible using a paper form, and filing is free of charge. Please note that the forms are only available in Finnish and in Swedish.

If a religious community has been entered in the Tax Administration’s registers, you must also report about the termination to the Tax Administration. You can file the notification with the Tax Administration at the same time when you file the termination with the Register of Religious Communities at the PRH. Fill in the appendix form 6214 of the Tax Administration and enclose it with the notification. You must enclose a report on the transfer of ownerships (if any), for example properties or owner apartments, so that the customer relationship can be terminated and any possible tax measures can be taken.

Please scroll down for the forms and instructions.

First, save the form to your computer to be able to fill it in. Fill in the forms - either in Finnish or in Swedish - on your computer, then print them at A4 size, and send them to the address given on the form.
