In addition to the construction industry, the tax number is now mandatory in the shipbuilding industry as well. Workers and independent operators at shipyards must have a registered tax number as of 1 July 2022. Workers must also wear a photo ID that displays their tax number if working at a shipyard.
In order to get a tax number, the worker must have a Finnish personal ID.
If a worker already has a Finnish personal ID and a tax number
If a worker already has a Finnish personal ID and a tax number, they do not need to visit a tax office. Workers or their employers can request entry into the shipbuilding industry’s tax number register in MyTax or by calling a Tax Office service number at 029 497 050. If a person has already been entered into the tax number register as a construction industry worker, they or their employer must separately request entry into the register as a worker in the shipbuilding industry.
