How to sign notifications online

A company’s notifications can be signed online by:

  • a member or the chairperson of the board of directors of a limited liability company, housing company, mutual real estate limited company, or co-operative, or, when filing changes, also the house manager of a housing company or a mutual real estate limited 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 Trade Register before 1994

The details of board members, managing directors, house managers, and partners registered at the Trade Register before 1994 do not include their personal identity codes, which is why they cannot sign notifications of changes online.

Please inform the Trade Register of their personal identity codes to give them access to online signing. The notification is free of charge.

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 filing 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.
