Finland EOR Services - Proposal Request

Our employer of record (EOR) services supports your expansion into one of the most stable and safest countries to live and work

Renowned for its flexible working, its free market and global orientated population Finland has fast made its name as one of the most appealing places to live and work within Europe. Add to this, Finland's competitive economy that excels in manufacturing, technology and telecommunications and it is clear to see why Finland is an increasingly popular area for business growth. 

While its social and economic benefits are popular amongst businesses and employees alike, the Finnish Working Hours Act poses strict employment laws that can cause problems for businesses. Some legislation is as follows:

  • Working day must not exceed eight hours or 40 hours a week
  • Overtime must be paid at an increase of 50% for the first two hours and an increase of 100% for any hours after that
  • Overtime must be agreed separately on each occasion
  • An employee can legally refuse overtime 
  • Employers must grant employees the option to select when and where they work for at least half of their contracted hours

In addition to complying with the Working Hours Act, businesses also face the challenge of setting up an entity in Finland, a complex and costly affair in any country. This is where our global EOR services can help. 

What is an Employer of Record?

Sometimes known as a PEO, an employer of record manages the employment of your international hires. While you are still responsible for the day-to-day management of your workforce, an EOR will take the legal responsibility of employee management and HR from your shoulders. Our Finnish EOR service includes:

  • Facilitating employment contracts
  • Complying with the Working Hours Act
  • Paying taxes and social security contributions
  • Running payroll 
  • Organising employee benefits

Perhaps most importantly, an employer of record allows you to expand into Finland without establishing a legal entity.

Why do I need an Employer of Record in Finland?

Navigating unfamiliar employment laws on top of growing your business requires ample resources, staff and budget. Not to mention that acquiring a legal subsidiary can be a lengthy, complex route that prolongs your time to market. Applying for a legal entity and getting to grips with employment laws can also cause non-compliance. This is where our Employer of Record services come in. 

By allowing us to manage the employment of your new employees in Finland, you can operate in this hub of flexible working and business opportunities without the burden of setting up a legal entity. Our extensive experience and knowledge on the Finnish Working Hours Act also ensures compliance so you can reap the benefits and compete in Finland's stable economy without the stress and liability of employment laws.

Meanwhile, our first-hand experience working in Finland can support you with the cultural differences in the country. For example, we can help you navigate the logistical challenges that remote working can bring but still help you meet the flexible working conditions that Finnish employees expect, therefore striking the balance between a lucrative business and a good employer.
