You can use the UKKO Private Trader service with an existing business ID. If you are registering with an existing business ID, follow these steps to get the most out of our service:
1. If your business ID has been paused, activate it before registering
If you want to reactivate your old business ID, you can do so with the YTJ service. A person can only have one business ID during their lifetime. This means that if you have had a private trader’s business ID in the past, you need to activate this, you cannot get a new one. Upon activation, you can update your industry if your old industry differs from the new one. Activate your business ID in the YTJ service before registering to the UKKO service.
How do I know if my business ID is active?
If you are not sure whether your business ID is active, you will notice it at the latest if you receive an authorization request from us for the Suomi.fi service. If your ID is paused, the authorization request cannot be done. If you are unsure, you can also search for YTJ's company search by name or business ID and view the ID information to see if it has ever been paused.
2. Enter your old accountancy information when registering - we will take care of the exchange of the accountancy for you
When you register, we ask you to provide the contact information of your old accounting firm or accountant so that we can ask them for the accounting materials we need. We will take care of the cancellation of the previous service and the addition of opening balances to our service. Once we receive the materials, we'll credit your account with opening balances. So don't panic if an event with this name appears in your account.
We will take care of the steps related to the exchange of the accounting firm, this does not require any action from you.
If you become our customer in the middle of the financial year and you have done accounting yourself during the first half of the year or have not done so at all, we can update your accounting for incomplete months for an additional fee (50e / month + VAT). If you need for arrears accounting, feel free to contact our customer service.
3. Follow your emails
Sometimes accounting firms do not disclose documents to third parties. When we receive this information, we will contact you by email and ask you to request the materials from the accounting firm and send them to us. Once we receive your accounting material, we will add the opening balance to your account.
