Filing notifications with the Tax Administration is always free of charge, whereas most notifications to the PRH's Trade Register and Register of Foundations are subject to a fee. However, notifications of changes to address and contact details, and of the termination of a business or an organization are free.

Please note that if you file your notification on paper, you must pay the handling fee in advance and submit the receipt together with the notification. If you start a limited liability company or file changes using our online service in Finnish or in Swedish, you pay the handling fee through the online service with your internet banking codes or by credit card.

The PRH will not refund the handling fee even if the notification lapses or its registration is rejected. The handling fee is not refunded even if you yourself withdraw your notification after filing.

Register of Associations is not included in BIS

The Register of Associations, which is maintained by the PRH, is not part of the Finnish Business Information System (BIS), a system jointly maintained by the PRH and the Tax Administration. Therefore, details from the Register of Associations are not transferred to the company search, and no information from online or paper notifications to the BIS is automatically passed to the Register of Associations.
