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 by post or email or via the Police’s online services.
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 [email protected] 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 can randomly select permit holders for more extensive checks.
