Employer registration is also included in all of our company formation packages.


EU Companies and Employer Obligations

An EU company can register to Finnish Employer Register without forming a permanent establishment in taxation or having to establish a business entity in Finland. An european company looking to employ in Finland might have tax and social security related employer obligations to fulfil. In cross-border employment, reporting obligations usually arise when an employee works in Finland for over 6 months. Obligations of a foreign employer in Finland depend on whether or not the company is considered to have a permanent establishment in Finland. Our consultants will help your company to evaluate the permanent establishment risk and handle all the obligations of a foreign employer.


Statutory Insurances in Finland

Statutory social insurances in Finland are pension insurance, unemployment insurance, group health insurance, accident insurance, and social contribution payment. Part of pension and unemployment insurance payments are deducted from an employee’s wage, and part is paid by the company. Other insurances are paid by the company based on salary estimate. All insurance percentages are fixed and based on paid salary.

Adcount’s payroll experts can set up all statutory insurances for your company and work as a payroll contact for insurance companies. At the end of the year, we will file the annual salary reports to insurance companies.
