Register business advice - toiminimi?

Post by jack2012 » Sun Apr 25, 2021 7:37 pm

Hi,

I need advice on registering a business and I prefer toiminimi. I have few questions:

1- Should I register for business first or I should wait until I earn something(.. bookkeeping is a headache actually! ). My business plan is based on selling courses on Udemy and similar sites. I would prefer when I make some money if it is not a violation of any rule. If you can provide any reference would be nice.
2- Is toiminimi a good option when the business model is based on Udemy/Youtube and similar sites?
3- What would be the tax percentage? Does it look that I fall in the category with Books?!!!? https://www.vero.fi/en/businesses-and-c ... es-of-vat/

Kiitos :)

This it the VAT rate, the amount of VAT usually depends on the country of the customer.
For customers in Finland, services like teaching courses have the normal 24% VAT rate.

On your profit (income without VAT and minus expenses) you will pay normal Finnish income tax with toiminimi.
