Business Register

Statistics Finland maintains the Business Register. It covers all enterprises, private practitioners of trade, general government and non-profit institutions serving households with a Business ID derived from the Tax Administration.

Public data on enterprises received from the Business Register include Business ID, enterprise name and address, industry, size category of personnel and turnover, start of operation and importer/exporter data. Public data on the establishment level are, for example, the name of the establishment, industry, size category of personnel and location data.

The data sources of the Business Register are several administrative records and Statistics Finland's direct inquiries to enterprises.

Enterprise Group Register

Statistics Finland also maintains the Enterprise Group Register. The primary source of data for the register are the group financial accounts reported by the enterprises to the Finnish Patent and Registration Office. The Enterprise Group Register contains data on, for example, type of group (group of enterprises, municipal group), the group’s nationality and group relations.
