EU VAT registration - VAT in Finland

VAT registration in Finland


In 1994, Finland adopted regulations on value added tax (VAT) in line with those in force in the European Union. The exception is the exclusion of the Åland Islands from the EU tax area. However, the same Finnish VAT rules apply in internal trade between the Åland Islands and the rest of Finland. Only in relation to other EU members Islands are treated as territory in a third country.

The basic VAT rate is 24 percent. There are also two reduced rates that apply to the following goods and services:

  • 14 percent for groceries, excluding live animals, catering services, drinking water, alcoholic beverages and tobacco products

  • 10 percent for medicine, books, cinema performances, passenger transport, hotels and other housing services, entrance fees (theaters, circuses, music and dance performances, sporting events, zoos, museums and other similar events and institutions).
