Identification in the Incomes Register
The Incomes Register requires the electronic authentication of users. The various transaction channels in the Incomes Register require different forms of identification. The Incomes Register has two transaction channels:
- technical interface
Identification for the use of the technical interface
Users of the Incomes Register's technical interfaces are identified by using the Incomes Register's certificate service. The solution is based on digital certificates (Public Key Infrastructure). A certificate is issued to an organisation delivering data to the Incomes Register (data provider) or that has the right to receive data from the Incomes Register (data user).
Users of the Incomes Register's technical interface do not need to identify themselves personally with online banking codes, for example, because use of the technical interface was already agreed as part of the application for using the technical interface.
The certificate is issued to either the company itself, or an accounting office or other payroll administration partner doing business on its behalf. A certificate is issued to a company, if the company reports the earnings payment data itself via the technical interface.
If an accounting office or other payroll administration partner is issued with a certificate, it commits to reporting data only on behalf of those customers with which it has entered into a mutual agency agreement.
Identification for the e-service
The login page for the Incomes Register's e-service opens from the incomesregister.fi page. The e-service requires identification with online banking codes, a mobile certificate, certificate card or organisation card.
Foreign companies and foreign representatives of foreign companies (natural persons) use the Finnish Authenticator Identification Service for identification.
