What is the processing status of your notification?
The Finnish Patent and Registration Office (PRH) processes notifications in order of arrival.
Monitor how the processing of your notification is proceeding
In the information service Virre, you can see free of charge the date and time of arrival of your notification, its status, and the latest processing phase in the Finnish Trade Register. Search by using the Business ID or the record number. Go to the notification search in Virre.Open link in a new tab
You may have to correct or complete your notification, in which case the processing time will be longer.
We will send an email message concerning the registration of the notification either to the email address you have submitted for the provider of further information or to the company’s email address in the register. We will also send a Trade Register extract of the registration by post.

How do I request a certain registration date?
The PRH makes exceptions to the processing order of notifications only for justifiable reasons. When you request a certain registration date or accelerated processing for your notification, remember to mention the reason for your request.
Please note that the requests are public. Do not include any such details in your request that should not be published in the Finnish Trade Register’s information service Virre.
We observe the requests whenever possible, but cannot, however, answer your requests separately.
Before sending your notification
If you use our online or paper forms (“Y forms") to file your notifications, select “Tick this box if you are asking for registration by a desired date" on page 1 of the Y form. Please note that requests submitted on the pages of the form that are only processed by the Finnish Tax Administration, do not come to the notice of the Finnish Trade Register.
Submit a separate request together with your notification submitted on an online form or a paper form. The request must include the reason why the notification should be registered on a certain date or why its processing should be accelerated.
After submitting your notification
You can request a certain registration date or accelerated processing also after you have filed your notification. This is also possible when you have filed your notification online at ytj.fi.
Send your request by email. The request must include the reason why the notification should be registered on a certain date, the requested date of registration, the company’s name, Business ID, if any, and details of the notification in question (such as its record number).
