Authorisation with an application

A mandate is an electronic power of attorney, the details of which are entered in the authorisation register. A mandate can be registered on the basis of an application if you or your company or organisation cannot authorise yourselves in Suomi.fi e-Authorizations. The time required for processing an application is approximately 2 months from the date on which the application was received.

Who can authorise with an application?

An application can be used for te authorisation if the assignor is one of the following:

  • An organisation whose signatory rights have not been entered in the Trade Register (e.g. municipality, parish, educational institution, foundation, business partnership, deemed partnership, embassy and the estate of deceased persons with business IDs)
  • A Finnish company in which the persons with signatory rights entered in the Trade Register do not have a Finnish personal identity code or which is bankrupt, in liquidation or has ceased to operate
  • A foreign company in which the persons with signatory rights entered in the Trade Register do not have a Finnish personal identity code or which does not have a business ID
  • A Finnish association whose signature rule states that the association is represented by two or more persons together
  • Self-employed professionals, business entrepreneurs, and agricultural and forestry traders who do not have personal identification tokens for electronic services or who cannot or do not know how to use electronic services
  • A guardian who previously used the Katso ID to manage the matters of the person under their guardianship

If the assignor is someone else, the mandate can, with a few exceptions, be granted or invalidates by the assignor himself or herself in Suomi.fi e-Authorizations.
