Finnish Trade Register
The Finnish Trade Register (Finnish: Kaupparekisteri, Swedish: Handelsregistret) is a company register in Finland. It provides official information on businesses in the whole country, including data from current and old register entries, articles of association, partnership agreements or rules.
The register is maintained by the Finnish Patent and Registration Office.
The content of the Trade Register is specified by Finnish law.
When a start-up notification is filed with the Trade Register or the Register of Foundations, the new business or foundation receives its Business ID (Finnish: Y-tunnus, Yritys- ja yhteisötunnus, Swedish: FO-nummer, Företags- och organisationsnumret).
The particulars reported by a company in its notice to the Trade Register and the documents attached to the notice are all public information.
Provider of legal documents
The Trade Register also delivers certificates. For example, a certificate from the book of original entries verifies that a notice has been submitted to the Register.
Another set of company registers is maintained by Statistics Finland. They are called Register of Enterprises and Establishments, Register of Public Corporations and Enterprise Group Register. Their purpose is to sell statistical information.
