Companies And Co-operatives That Have Not Filed Financial Statements, Risk Being Struck-Off The Trade Register

The Finnish Patent and Registration Office (PRH), which maintains the Finnish Trade Register, will deregister or place into receivership limited liability companies and co-operatives that have not filed their financial statements for registration. The second deregistration in 2023 now includes more than 800 limited liability companies and co-operatives.

See the list of the companies in the second deregistration (a reminder recorded on 25.9.2023) on the website.

The companies on the list must file their financial statements with the Trade Register by 9 January 2024.

The PRH can deregister even an active limited liability company or co-operative if they do not file the financial statements by the deadline and if there is no basis for ordering the company into liquidation. Deregistration will take place in January 2024.

If the company is deregistered from the Trade Register, the company can appeal the decision at the Administrative Court of Helsinki.

Deregistration from the Trade Register or receivership is based in each case on either the Finnish Limited Liability Companies Act or the Finnish Co-operatives Act.
