Could someone tell me what i need to do to start a business and what costs there will be. I been in tax office three times and they havent told all the things i have to pay. they told i have to pay tax which is about 26% plus 4,9% of some other taxes. Then i have to pay vat which is 22% and i was told to go to Insurance firm to ask for building insurance and then there they told me i still have to pay some other pension insurance of 21 % which works out about 6000euros if I earn about 25000euros year. then I was told that if i wont suddenly have any work i wont be entitled to any unemployed benefits either. And is there still some hidden costs i havent been told and will have to be paid in order to start a business. Seems really expensive stuff and seems that there wont be nothing left in my pocket after paying all these taxes and insurances. I would like to start a business myself and in building construction area.
Or would it be best to sign on to http://eezy.fi/ or does anyone know any other options or companys like this?

What you should do is sign up at the local TE-keskus for an ulkomaalaisten yrittäjäkurssi. Of course they might require enough Finnish to understand it all.

most of the costs you have said here is about right , the only other cost i can think of, is someone to do your books ,for a business of your size i would say this would be 40€ a month .

thanks for answer. But i think the cost i have to pay out just does not make it worth starting self employed .id.How i am meant to earn money when the cost each month is so high it does not make much sense i think?shame.I try better myself here in finland and not be a bum and claim unemployment...plus it so long to find out what was need to start up .But i found in places like vero when questions i asked they answered(but had to know what to ask) no 1 was giving any advice that they knew i had to do .When all they had to do was be helpful by saying you need to pay for tax, social,vat,yel,insurance and if you have business and run out of work you can not claim unemployment , bit silly cos you pay so much back from wage and in the building industry you have times when cant find work or waiting for start date... :thumbsdown:

Good afternoon. My name is Maxim Bilan. I am from Ukraine. I represent Agricultural Youth Union. Our organization is looking for the opportunities for students of Agricultural educational establishments of Ukraine to have trainee practice at agricultural farms of Finland. Unfortunately, nowadays there is no coordinator from Finnish side and searching host families for interns goes in a private manner. That`s why we are looking for coordinating organizations in the host country to realize this project. The reason why I applied to YOU is that In some spheres of Agriculture
there are some positions that residents don`t want to occupy, for this reason I consider that interns
working for lower wages can occupy unclaimed positions, thus the agricultural
sector of Finland benefits from this project. The coordinator from Finnish side is supposed to get reward for each found contract
Best Wishes. Maxim Bilan

Me, too. I pay 111 € a month and considering the small amount of paper I have I think it is too much.
