You can view your own data in the Incomes Register
As an individual, you can view your earnings payment data in the Incomes Register’s e-service. From 2021 onwards, you can also view data in the e-service on pensions and benefits paid to you. You can access the Incomes Register on behalf of another individual or company if you have received an authorisation.
How to view your data in the Incomes Register:
1) Sign in to the Incomes Register’s e-service
Identify yourself using online banking codes, a mobile certificate or a certificate card.
2) Select a role
- Select “Act as a private individual” if you want to view your own earnings payment data.
- Select “Act on behalf of another individual” if you are using the service on behalf of your underage child or an individual who authorised you.
3) Select “Personal income data”
In the Incomes Register, you can view the following data reported for you:
- fringe benefits
- non-wage compensation for work (if your company is not in the prepayment register)
- other earned income
- tax-exempt and taxable reimbursements of expenses
- information on international work
- absence and employment relationship data (if your employer has reported this data)
- pensions and benefits.
All data is reported to the Incomes Register regardless of the amount – there is no lower limit. Payments paid to minors must also be reported.

The payer reports data to the Incomes Register
The employer or other payer reports data on payments to the Incomes Register. The data is usually available in the Incomes Register within five calendar days after the payment date. If the data is not available in the Incomes Register, contact your employer or other payer to ensure whether the data has been reported to the Incomes Register.
Households may also act as employers and pay wages.
Data in the Incomes Register is used as grounds for decisions
The authorities use data reported to the Incomes Register as the basis for many types of decisions. The data is used by unemployment funds for calculating allowances and by the Social Insurance Institution of Finland (Kela) when granting allowances paid to employers, for example. The Tax Administration uses data reported to the Incomes Register for pre-completed tax returns and revised tax cards.
Access the Incomes Register’s e-service to check what income data your employer has reported to the Incomes Register. As income earner you will also be able to request Incomes Register extract concerning your own income information.
If the data is incorrect, ask your employer to correct the data reported to the Incomes Register.
