HAE MUKAAN UUTEEN KOULUTUKSEEN SYKSYLLE 2020
Under the Money Laundering Act (rahanpesulaki), most businesses need to provide details of their beneficial owners – in practice, their owners – to the Trade Register by 1 July. Things like large cash sums paid by clients also need to be notified.
The amendments provide greater detail on pay and oblige foreign employers to compensate for travel, accommodation and meals and ensure certain accommodation conditions. Albert Mäkelä, a lawyer and specialist at Suomen Yrittäjät, says, “Regulating posted workers’ employment terms is important to prevent foreign companies from competing unfairly with Finnish ones.”
In its supplementary budget of 2019, the Finnish government decided to award project funding to start employment advice services for small businesses. The Ministry has invited Suomen Yrittäjät to run the project. The goal is to help small business owners and single-person businesses interested in hiring hire employees.
