Is the citizenship application outside of the RP process?

If you are eligible to apply for citizenship but your residence permit is also about to expire, do you have to apply for both an RP extension and for citizenship (and pay both fees)? Or can you only apply for cititzenship and stay while your application is being processed, similar to when your RP is...

Required to stay in Finland while extended RP application is processing?

When you apply for your first family-based RP, Migri says to wait in the country where you applied until you receive a decision. Is that also the case for your extended family-based RP application? I am wondering if I will be able to travel to my home country while I have a pending application. My i...

Applying for first RP extension: how early?

I am living in Finland on my first family ties-based residence permit. It is valid for 1 year and expires in February 2022. Is anyone aware of when I can apply for my extension? Is it too early to do it now? My reading of the Migri website is that I could apply now and get it out of the way. But if ...

Toiminimi limits?

Tax implications aside, is there any limit to the amount of money you can invoice under a tmi? Is there a threshold over which you would need to consider a different business entity?

Re: Working as a contractor in Finland for a US company

Hello - I will be moving to Finland in 2021 from the US on a residence permit (family-based, not work-based). I want to keep working for my company which is based in the US, but as a contractor. I've looked into the pros and cons of tmi vs OY (including on this forum), but one question I still don'...

Re: Tax on income earned before moving to Finland in the same tax year

Hello - When one moves to Finland mid-tax year and plans to stay indefinitely (and thus is a tax resident and is taxed on global income), are they liable to pay tax on income earned in that same tax year but before establishing residency in Finland? While this seems to me like a basic question, I c...

Re: Working as a contractor in Finland for a US company

I have the exact same situation as you. I found out that If I join the Finnish tax system, I will need to follow the local tax system to pay a quite high amount of tax. So what you may need to consider is check around with your income rate how much tax you may need to pay for the gov of Finland. If...

Re: Moving to Finland, but keeping my US-based job

Thank you both for your replies. This is very useful information. One other question I have that I will post here in case either of you knows (before I start a new thread): What exactly is the difference/benefits of a tmi versus just having my US-based client pay me directly and I count it as income...
