First step of becoming an employer in Finland starts by registering to the Register of Employers.
If you have a business based outside Finland that pays wages to an employee working in Finland, you may have tax and social security-related employer obligations to fulfil. For a foreign company registration as an employer in Finland does not require setting up a company in Finland; you can register to employer register only.
Finland has several compulsory insurances including pension, unemployment, group health, and accident insurance. Employer tax and social security fee are calculated and paid to Tax Office monthly, quarterly or annually.
