How to sign notifications online

A company’s notifications can be signed online by:

  • an ordinary member or the chairperson of the board of directors of a limited liability company, housing company, or co-operative, or, when filing changes, also the house manager of a housing company, or the managing director
  • the private trader
  • partners in general partnerships
  • general partners in limited partnerships.

If a corporation is a partner in a general partnership or limited partnership, the corporation cannot sign a notification online.

Holders of procuration or persons authorised to represent the company cannot sign a Trade Register notification. Persons registered at the PRH Trade Register before 1994 cannot sign a notification of changes online.

Are you signing a notification filled in by someone else?

If someone else has filled in the notification and you are signing it, log into the online service and select either “Yrityksen perustaminen"/"Grunda företag" or “Yrityksen tietojen muutokset"/“Ändra företagets uppgifter". After that, you enter either the notification number (“ilmoitusnumero"/"nummer för anmälan") or the Business ID (“Y-tunnus" /“FO-nummer") of the company.

Please note that new persons responsible for the company must enter the notification number (“ilmoitusnumero"/"nummer för anmälan").

After this, you will be directed to the signing page where you confirm the notification and click on the “Kyllä, allekirjoitan" or “Ja, jag undertecknar" button to sign the notification.
