Who can act as an appointed representative in the Incomes Register if no official roles are designated in the Trade Register or the Business Information System (BIS)?

For example, municipalities and public organisations must always appoint an individual who has the right to grant authorisations using the Suomi.fi authorisation application. An individual who has the right to grant authorisations can grant authorisations in the Suomi.fi e-Authorisations service for the individuals required to use the Incomes Register’s e-service. An individual who has the right to grant authorisations also appoints an appointed representative in the Incomes Register by granting the “Processing of log, interface and report data related to income data” authorisation for the individual.
