Moving to Finland in March

Post by Sighthound » Mon Jan 15, 2018 12:47 pm

So, all decided, i'll be moving to FInland in March for 6 months initially.

After 6 months i will decide if i can stay more or not.

I have some questions:

I'm an EU Citizen, could do the first 6 months like if i'm on holiday?
I will work from home for my english employer, and i will need to rent house/open an electricity contract and a broadband contract.
Do i need henkilötunnus to do this?

No. You can only do 3 months. After that, you have to register your right of residence with the authorities.

In most cases, yes.
Every case is unique. You can't measure the result of your application based on arbitrary anecdotes online.

Thanks,
could someone also help me with the following.

I will be working for a company in UK ( where i work now ).

is it correct that:

If i stay only 6 months i pay taxes only in uk.

If i continue to stay after 6 months, i pay Wage taxes in finand but i can continue to pay social taxes in uk for up to 2 years.

Now, if i continue to stay do i need to pay back taxes also for the first 6 months?

Have you looked at what the tax treaty says? https://www.gov.uk/government/publicati ... x-treaties

You go to see a doctor. Or you go to a private clinic that does those scans. Doctor might also refer you to a scan if s/he needs that scan done. In private sector you pay a lot, public side you pay little. You do have European health insurance card with you? http://ec.europa.eu/social/main.jsp?catId=559

If you haven't registered here and you are working for a UK employer then I guess you are a tourist...?
Your EU healthcard covers you if you use public sector healthcare.

Aren’t you required to register after 90 days? Maybe I am mistaken but that is what I was told.

The six month rule applies to taxation.

So, 3 months are gone almost, i've got the appointment next week with Migri to register my right to stay here as EU citizen.

Now...We got our two foreign car with us ( one is italian and one is British ).... who do i need to speak with to understand how much it will cost to register them here?

Just to have an idea if is worth it or if is better to sell them in origin country..........

Just need information now, i don't want to register it yet...
