Temporary employer's service

Customer service | 010 284 3714

Am I a temporary employer?

You know you are a temporary employer when you temporarily hire one or more employees for your company, house, yard or forest and you pay a specific sum in wages and salaries, altogether less than EUR 8,346 for six months in 2018 (EUR 8,334 in 2017).

As a temporary employer

Sometimes you hire an employee temporarily. For your company, home, yard or forest. You need to take care of the pension cover of these employees. This becomes your responsibility whenever you pay at least a specified minimum amount of wages or salary. In 2018, that sum is EUR 58.27 per month (EUR 58.19 in 2017).

Employees' pension cover

As a temporary employer arranging pension cover for your employees is simple: all you need to do is pay the earnings-related pension contribution, i.e. TyEL contribution. The contribution is a percentage of the wages or salary you have paid to your employee. In 2018, the percentage is 25.3 (25.1 in 2017). The employee pays a share of the contribution. Deduct the employee's contribution from his or her pay and pay us the contribution. 

Improvements in our online service

We have improved our service for temporary employers by making it even easier and simpler to take care of matters online. In the service, you will require access to your online bank where you pay your TyEL insurance contributions. The service is only available in Finnish and Swedish.

Submit employee data following the payment of wages

You can conveniently arrange pension cover in the online service for temporary employers. In the service, report the employment information and pay the TyEL insurance contribution through your online bank.

1. Payroll period and employer’s information

Visit the service and submit a payroll notification no later than the 20th day of the month after the month in which wages or salaries were paid.

2. Employees and payroll information

Enter the employee’s name, personal identity code and gross pay, and save the information in the list. If the personal identity code is missing or if the employee does not have a Finnish identity code, enter the person’s date of birth (ddmmyy) and gender.

3. Review the summary and pay in your online bank

You can go back to the previous page if necessary to edit or delete information. When all the information is in order, log in to your online bank and pay the insurance contribution, then return to the service. You will be taken to a confirmation page, where you can save and print out a summary of your notifications for accounting purposes.
