Palkkaus.fi reports salary information to the Incomes Register for each salary payment automatically. In addition, Palkkaus.fi sends a required separate employer declaration to the Incomes Register every month automatically. Palkkaus.fi also sends separate notifications regarding calendar months in which the salary has not been paid if the employer is on the Tax Administration’s employer register automatically. If you use another payroll service or software in addition to the Palkkaus.fi service, you can cancel the sending of a separate declaration via the Palkkaus.fi service and submit the employer’s separate declaration to the Incomes Register yourself.
