Death estates with a Business ID: how to grant a Suomi.fi authorisation for managing tax matters
An estate of a deceased person must always have a Business ID in order to authorise other individuals or companies to take care of the estate’s tax matters on its behalf. However, estates of deceased persons cannot be issued a Business ID only for the purpose of getting a Suomi.fi authorisation mandate.
Many estates already have a Business ID because it has been necessary for other purposes such as the operation of agriculture, or for other reasons. Alternatively, an estate that conducts business, etc. can submit an application for a Business ID to be issued to the estate. At present, an estate that does not have a Business ID must use paper forms for its tax matters.
You will need personal online banking codes, a mobile certificate or a certificate card for using e-services.
How to request and grant authorisations on Suomi.fi
Select one or multiple authorisations
The “Managing of tax affairs” authorisation enables the authorised party to take care of all of the authorising party’s tax matters. Other authorisations only cover certain individual matters.
You will be able to select the authorisation later in the Suomi.fi e-authorisation service.
Request rights to grant authorisations
First, you must make a request for authorisation in the Suomi.fi e-authorisation service. The request can concern either a right to grant authorisations or a representative’s right to grant authorisations.
Please note: After your request has been processed and your right to grant authorisations has been registered, you must log in to the Suomi.fi e-authorisation service with your personal online banking codes. In the service, you will be able to grant the actual authorisations (described in section 1) that will allow the party you authorise to take care of your tax matters electronically.
Grant an authorisation on Suomi.fi
After the request for authorisation has been accepted and you have received the right to grant authorisations, log in to the Suomi.fi e-authorisation service.
Grant the required authorisations to the parties you need to take care of the organisation’s tax matters. For example, you can grant an authorisation to yourself or to an accounting firm.
