Hiring an employee

When a business begins to pay wages on a regular basis, it must report to the Finnish Tax Administration’s register of employers using a start-up notification form or a change notification form (if the company already has a business ID). Once the company is in the register, the Finnish Tax Administration will send the company instructions on how to pay and report taxes withheld in advance and social security contributions.

When recruiting an employee, think about the following things:

  • define the criteria for the open position and what the duration and type of the employment contract will be
  • prepare to provide more information and to read a big pile of applications
  • arrange interviews and make the choice

After choosing your new employee:

  • make an employment contract and familiarize the employee with his/her tasks
  • report to the Finnish Tax Administration’s register of employers, if necessary
  • get a statutory employers’ liability insurance for accidents and occupational diseases
  • get an employees’ retirement insurance and arrange occupational health care
  • apply for the determination of the unemployment insurance prepayments
