SETTING UP A BUSINESS IN FINLAND IS QUICK AND EASY

Foreign entrepreneurs have established over 6 000 businesses in Finland. We welcome you to join them!

International companies can access the same benefits as Finnish companies. Opening a legal entity takes only a couple of weeks.

4 STEPS TO SET UP A BUSINESS IN FINLAND

1. Select a name for your company. To gain exclusive rights to the name, you should submit it to the Trade Register which is maintained by the Finnish Patent and Registration Office (PRH).

2. Open a bank account for your business. The company requires a bank account to pay share capital, process payment transactions and support accounting.

3. File a start of the business notification. Establishing and registering a business requires that a notification be filed with the Trade Register and various Tax Administration registers. This can be done easily using a single form (“Y form”).

4. Take advantage of online tools. You can establish a limited liability company online through the Business Information System online service. You can also create a workspace at My Enterprise Finland. The My Enterprise Finland service gives you access to a wealth of useful services. These online services require you to log in with your online banking credentials.
