Payroll Management in Finland

Finnish employers must comply with the minimum requirements on employment terms and conditions as stated in a nationwide collective labour agreement considered to be representative within the sector. Collective labour agreements define the salary an employee is entitled to.  
All employers have a statutory obligation to take out accident and pension insurance for the employees. Also, the employees should be provided with group life assurance and unemployment insurance in addition to mandatory accident insurance. 
In Finland, the employer must arrange for statutory occupational health care. The employer is responsible for paying any withheld taxes and social security contributions to the tax authorities. 

The employer is also required to submit annual notifications to the tax authorities, and the pension and accident insurance companies,  on wages and salaries paid to its employees.
