Do the following

Application for the registration or invalidation of a mandate

1 Go to Authorisation with an application page.

2 Read the instructions for your application, that is, find out which information and documents your will need to submit an application and how you can deliver the application for processing.

3 Once you have received the instructions, you can fill in the application on the same page.

4 Submit the application for processing in accordance with the instructions you have received.

5 You will be notified when the mandate has been registered or invalidated. If the application is incomplete and the requested additional information is not provided by the given deadline, the mandate cannot be registered or invalidated and the application will be rejected.

If you cannot fill in the application on the Authorisation with an application page, you can submit the application with the help of an official at your choice of a service location of the Digital and Population Data Services Agency or the Finnish Tax Administration’s service point. However, please note that you will likely not be able to handle the complete matter in one visit. The application can only be accepted for processing once you have provided all the necessary information and submitted the necessary documents as attachments to the application.

Accepting a mandate request

A person who can represent the assignor alone can accept a mandate request at the Digital and Population Data Services Agency’s service location. If a company, association or another organisation does not have any persons entitled to represent alone, all persons who can represent in accordance with the rules of representation must accept the mandate request for their part. Note, however, that a person who has the right to grant mandates can accept mandate requests in e-Authorizations.

Do you need help?
