Are you an agency, contractor or employer operating in the Finnish market? In Finland, TCP offer our standard payroll services, where contractors are employed on our monthly payroll and the employer has a strictly work-based relationship.
Employing and being employed in Finland
Whether the contractor is on a tax ruling scheme or not, we can make sure that they pay the right amount of tax, with the right entitlements to holidays, sickness, notice and expenses. Foreign contractors who work in Finland are taxed at a flat rate, but that is a temporary arrangement that can be withdrawn at any time. TCP can help to ensure that if it is, everyone involved gets the maximum amount of notice to prevent any nasty shocks.
When does a freelancer become fully employed?
We can help both individuals and employers to negotiate Finnish legislation.
If you are sick and can’t work, then you have the right to your salary if you have worked for the same employer for more than one month. The first 10 days are paid by the employer, and if the employee is sick for longer than 10 days the employee can receive sickness pay from the social security system.
The contractor has to apply for a work permit themselves, however we can help with providing the right paperwork for the application.
We can smooth out all the processes and procedures necessary to making everything run smoothly between everyone in the working relationship –
- Removing restrictions on capital, debt, contractor concentration and turnover/fees
- Entering into contracts
- Producing payslips from timesheets
- Processing and maintaining payroll
- Invoicing and credit control
- Making sure individuals are paid every week or month
- Providing indemnity insurance cover
- Paying agreed margins
- Offering professional support and assistance
TCP helps everyone to enjoy smoother, more efficient working relationships, reduced costs and with fewer restrictions. We simplify the entire process for every party, from the individual to the agency to the client company, with everyone retaining their own identity. This allows everyone involved to concentrate on doing what they do best.
