Business parking permit

  • Service
  • Helsinki
  • Public service

Owners of a regional business parking permit can park in designated resident parking spaces in the resident parking zone where their company is located. With a business parking permit that extends to all of the zones, you can park freely in all of Helsinki’s resident parking zones.

The business parking permit is intended for companies, public entities and entrepreneurs.

The City of Helsinki grants a maximum of five permits (five vehicles) per one company location. A single permit may only be used by the specific vehicle noted on the permit. We do not grant permits for commuter parking.

You can get a permit for a car, van, motorcycle, motorised quadricycle or another vehicle with a maximum mass of four tonnes that is owned by a company or its employees.

A regional permit costs €30.83 and a permit for all the city’s zones costs €61.66 per month per vehicle, including value-added tax. Low-emission vehicles receive a 50 per cent discount on the business parking permit fee.

Do the following

A parking penalty fee must be paid at the latest on the due date. If a penalty fee has been issued or a vehicle has been clamped, you can contact the parking warden to file a claim for a revised decision. As a rule, the claim must be filed within 30 days of the date on which the decision was attached to a vehicle or the vehicle owner was otherwise notified of it.

Background information

The task of parking enforcement is to enforce compliance with the rules and regulations concerning stopping and parking cars and stationary idling. Parking in public areas is monitored by municipal parking inspectors and the police. A parking inspector may impose a parking penalty fee for a violation of these prohibitions and restrictions. The size of the fee varies by municipality. If you think you have been fined on false grounds, you can file a claim for a revised decision.

Parking enforcement may clamp your car if it has been wrongly parked for at least two days or your car has accumulated five unpaid parking penalty fees.

A municipal parking warden or inspector must have insignia and a uniform that indicate his or her task, as well as a badge of office that can be displayed if necessary. Private parking facilities with their own operating principles and rules also operate in large cities
