Floating charge information services

  • Service
  • Nationwide
  • Public service

Movable property owned by a company and belonging to a business can be secured by a floating charge. Information on floating charge can be obtained from the floating charge register maintained by the Finnish Patent and Registration Office (PRH).

You can use the online Virre information service searches to check whether the company has valid or pending floating charges. As a result of the searches, you will be able to access the information in the floating charge register. The searches are partly free of charge.

You can also purchase a certificate of mortgages from the Virre information service. It contains information on valid and pending floating charge matters that are part of the company's business operations and that burden the company's floating charge eligible assets.

Floating charge register data can also be obtained as XML messages to your application via the interface and certificates of mortgages as PDF files.

You can also order chargeable registry documents and copies separately.

Floating charge register information can also be obtained from the services of PRH 's partners.
