Suomi.fi e-Authorizations Mandate service provided by officials
- Public service
If a company, an association or other organisation is unable to use Suomi.fi e-Authorizations, the mandate can be granted or invalidated by means of the Mandate service provided by officials. In this case, the mandate is registered in the authorisation register or invalidated on the basis of the application.
Companies, associations and organisations may grant:
- a right to grant a mandate, in which case the person granted the mandate can manage the mandates that the company or organisation grants to others in Suomi.fi e-Authorizations.
- a representative’s right to grant a mandate, in which case the person granted the mandate can manage the mandates granted to the company or organisation in Suomi.fi e-Authorizations
- a mandate for transactions, if the use of Suomi.fi e-Authorizations is not possible due, for example, to a lack of skill or the representatives not having means of identification for electronic services.
An application for invalidating a granted mandate can be submitted if the assignor is unable or does not know how to use Suomi.fi e-Authorizations. An individual can also approve any mandate requests they have received when they visit a service location.
Do the following
Application for the registration of a mandate or deleting a mandate
- Go to Authorisation with an application web page.
- Find out the instruction for your application, meaning what information and documents your will need to submit an application and how you can submit or deliver the application for processing.
- Fill in the required information on the application.
- Submit the signed printout of the application and its attachments for processing.
- The application will be processed by an official who works for the Mandate service provided by officials at the Tax Administration.
- You will be notified when the mandate has been registered or invalidated from the register. If the application is incomplete and the requested additional information is not provided by the given deadline, the mandate cannot be registered or deleted, and the application will be rejected.
If you cannot fill in the application via the Authorisation with an application web page, you can submit the application with the help of an official at a service location. 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.
Approval of mandate request
A person who has the right to represent the assignor alone can approve for the company a mandate request by visiting a service location. If a company, an association or other 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 Suomi.fi e-Authorizations.
Where necessary, Population Data Services Agency’s Customer service for organisations can provide guidance on the completion and submission of an application.
To whom and on what terms
Applications may be used to grant mandates to:

- Foreign companies that have not been registered in Finland or those whose representatives’ Finnish personal identity code has not been recorded in the Trade Register
