General partnerships and limited partnerships: how to file financial statements with the Finnish Trade Register

General partnerships and limited partnerships file a notification with the Finnish Trade Register within six months from the end of the financial period only if they meet any of the following requirements:

  1. The partner in a general partnership or general partner in a limited partnership is a limited liability company.
  2. The partner or general partner is a general partnership or a limited partnership, whose general partner is a limited liability company.
  3. At least two of the following thresholds were exceeded during the financial period that has ended or during the financial period immediately preceding it:
  • net turnover was 12 million euros;
  • balance sheet total was 6 million euros; or
  • average number of employees was 50.

Who files the notification?

The notification is signed by a partner in a general partnership or by a general partner in a limited partnership. Procuration rights are not enough to sign a notification to the Finnish Trade Register. Read more at ytj.fi about how to sign notifications using the online filing service at ytj.fi.

What happens after registration?

As soon as the financial statements have been registered, a register extract will be sent to the company’s mailing address, as recorded in the Finnish Business Information System (BIS) at ytj.fi.

The details on the financial statements are public and available from the PRH Virre Information Service. Go to Virre Information Service.
