Good to know about the e-service
The e-service is meant for submitting single reports or small report batches.
The search feature of the e-service can only be used with a web browser and it is not possible to directly transfer search results to a spreadsheet or file. However, you can request fixed-format transcripts from the service.
Instructions for using the e-service for data providers, or payers, can also be found as a PDF file.
Devices and browsers
We recommend using the service with the Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge browsers (version 87 or newer). The service does not necessarily function as intended on other browsers or mobile devices.
If the Incomes Register's e-service does not function properly, make sure to clear the cache. You can clear the browser history by clicking History in the menu that opens when you click the three dots in the upper right corner of the browser.
If you are using the service on behalf of another individual or if you use the upload service, do not use your browser’s ‘Back’ button.
When filling in the Incomes Register's web forms, the ”Autocomplete” (often called ”Fill in forms automatically”) function of the browser should not be used. This function can lead to errors in the information filled in on the form that the person filling in the form might not notice.
If the e-service has a lot of strange errors showing on your display, make sure that the automatic translation function is not on. The browser's automatic translation function can modify the language. These features may be enabled on your browser software.
Palkka.fi and many other payroll software report data directly to the Incomes Register
If you pay wages often or otherwise retrieve large amounts of data from the incomes Register in connection to your work, using a payroll system or similar software will make your work easier. Many systems can report data to the Incomes Register directly during payroll runs.
You can also perform payroll calculations with the Palkka.fi service, which is free to use. The service calculates net wages and other related employer’s costs and reports the information to the Incomes Register on your behalf. The service is available in Finnish and Swedish.
