Filing financial statements late with the Trade Register

Most companies must file their financial statements with the Finnish Trade Register. For example, all limited liability companies and co-operatives must file their financial statements with the Trade Register for each financial period.

Companies must file their financial statements with the Trade Register even if they have interrupted or stopped their business activities. Go to our instructions: Financial statements of inactive businesses.

Companies are responsible for filing their own financial statements within the time limit. The time limit for filing depends on the company type. See time limits by company type.

If you miss the deadline, file the financial statements with the Trade Register without delay.

File the notification using the form for registering financial statements on paper. It is not possible to file delayed financial statements via the online service. Go to our instructions: Filing financial statements directly with the Trade Register.

If your company does not file its financial statements despite the requests from the PRH, please note the consequences:

What does it cost?

The handling fee is 85 euros if you file the financial statements late with the Trade register.

The fee applies to the financial statements from the financial periods ending on 1 January 2019 or after.

Please note: Do not pay the fee for filing delayed financial statements in advance. The PRH will send you an invoice after the financial statements have been registered.

Completing financial statements is free of charge.
