Finnish accounting firms may not perform both accounting and audits for the same business; auditing is conducted separately. The accounting firm handles aspects such as bookkeeping, payroll services, and notifications to authorities (ex. ALV (VAT), TyEL & YEL), then compiles financial statements and hands them over to independent auditors. The auditing firm may be a sister company of the accounting firm.
Electronic financial administration (Sähköinen taloushallinto or 'online accounting') has become the norm, so you rarely have to submit paper documentation and it is not necessary that your accountant be local.
CPA, Certified Public Accountant, Chartered Accountant, Certified Practising Accountant, or Chartered Professional Accountant: In Finland look for the term KHT, which stands for Keskuskauppakamarin Hyväksymä Tilintarkastaja and translates as 'Authorised Public Accountant'.
Authorised Accounting Firm - Definition: In order to be eligible an accounting firm must be a member of the Association of Finnish Accounting Firms, comply with the rules of the Association and meet the requirements specified in the Institute for Accountancy’s rules concerning authorised accounting firms.
