Expand your business into the world leader of flexible working using our PEO services in Finland
Ranked as the most stable and safest country to live and work, it's no wonder that Finland is fast becoming one of the most attractive European countries for business expansion.
With a competitive economy that excels in manufacturing, technology and telecommunications, combined with an outstanding educational system and the highest living standards, Finland is popular with expanding businesses as well as a hit with their employees.
Despite leading the way in flexible working, expanding into Finland isn't as flexible. It is thanks to their Working Hours Act that Finland can offer all workers flexible and safe working. This poses strict employment laws and employee rights that businesses must adhere to, some of which include:
- 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 stipulations around working conditions and flexibility, businesses in Finland must also contribute appropriately to social security funds and tax. This combination of the Working Hours Act and tax stipulations makes expansion into Finland a challenging affair. This is where our expert PEO services come in.
Your Recruitment and PEO Partner in Finland
With Finland adopting such forward-thinking, flexible working conditions that the majority of countries are unfamiliar with, expanding into Finland can pose logistical as well as legal challenges. By acting as your recruitment and PEO partner in Finland, Leap29 can help you navigate both the legal and practical hurdles in this forward-thinking country.
Firstly, from a legal perspective, Leap29 can help you to process tax and social security funds as well as registering you with Social Security Organisations and the Tax Office. In addition, by acting as your Professional Employer Organisation, we can support your expansion without you needing to establish a legal entity in Finland. This means you can be reassured that regulations set out in Finnish employment law have been met while you focus on your business growth.
Secondly, with extensive experience working in Finland, we can help you navigate the flexible working that is the norm in the country. For example, requiring employees to select when and where they work for at least half of their contracted working hours can pose logistical challenges for expanding businesses who are not familiar with such working arrangements. Likewise, strict stipulations on overtime can feel restrictive to some employers. As your PEO partner, we can help you navigate Finland's flexible working so that you can build a lucrative business as well as thriving relationships with employees.
