Employer payroll reporting

Each employer in Finland has an obligation to withhold income tax and employer and employee contributions from the employee’s salary and remit the payments to the tax authorities. They also have an obligation for payroll reporting. This means that the University of Jyväskylä will inform the Finnish tax authorities of all salaries paid and taxes and employer contributions withheld.

Finnish tax authorities will send information on the taxation of foreign citizens to their home countries. Therefore, it is recommended that you report your income received in Finland also in your home country.
