Annual reports and accounting reports

Each money collection permit has an annual reporting or accounting obligation, regardless of whether a collection has been arranged or donations have been received. Permits under the 2020 Money Collection Act are valid indefinitely and annual reports are made once a year. Processing of annual reports has a fee, which is 120 euros in the year 2022.  

Permits under the old Money Collection Act have an accounting obligation. Permits that lie under the old Act are valid for the determined time stated in the permit condition and the accounting is done when the permit ends. Some permits under the old Money Collection Act have an interim accounting obligation, if it is stated in the permit conditions.

Holders of money collection permits that are valid indefinitely should send their annual reports to the National Police Board. Send the report either in Finnish or Swedish via the online services of the police. You can send it also by post or email if necessary. Use of online services of the police is recommended. 

Accounting reports for campaigns run with money collection permits issued under the old Finnish Money Collection Act are processed by either the National Police Board or the permit holder’s local police department: all accounts of permit holders whose permits were issued by the National Police Board are processed by the National Police Board, and accounts of permit holders whose permits were issued by their local police department are processed by the local police department. Accounting reports must be in Finnish or Swedish and sent by post or by email. The Police’s online services cannot be used to submit accounting reports for campaigns run with money collection permits issued under the old Money Collection Act.

The National Police Board’s email address for accounting reports and annual reports is arpajaishallinto@poliisi.fi. Alternatively, accounting reports and annual reports can be sent by post to the National Police Board, Gambling Administration, PO Box 50, FI-11101 RIIHIMÄKI.

The reports are designed to explain to the permit authority how much has been raised through money collection campaigns and how the funds raised have been used. In addition to reviewing permit holders’ accounting reports and annual reports, the permit authorities randomly select permit holders for more extensive inspections.
