Price list for 2020

Findata’s prices are based on decree 1500/2019 of the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health on charges for work carried out by Findata.

Apart from the remote access environment, the service prices pertain to actions under public law that are based on cost value (VAT 0%). The remote access environment services, however, are commercially priced services subject to a fee (VAT +24%).

We reserve the right to change the prices for the remote access environment if changes take place to the procurement costs for the remote access environment independently of Findata’s operations.

Invoicing

1. Fee for Findata data request or data permit

  • We invoice for a decision on a data request or issuing of a data permit once the decision has been made or the permit has been granted.

2. Data extraction, processing and delivery

  • We find out the data controllers’ costs for extracting and delivering the data as part of our processing of the data request or data permit and provide this information to the applicant. We also give the applicant an estimate of the maximum cost for Findata’s data-processing work.
  • We invoice for the controllers’ costs and the time spent by Findata processing the data once the data have been disclosed to the decision recipient or permit holder.
  • Findata reserves the right to invoice in advance for the controllers’ costs and estimated work time spent processing the data in situations where the estimated total cost exceeds EUR 5,000.00.

3. Use charge for remote access environment

  • We invoice the use charge for the remote access environment on a monthly basis, according to the months of use.
  • We reserve the right to change the prices for the remote access environment if changes take place to the procurement costs for the remote access environment independently of Findata’s operations.

Payment periods and terms

The invoice payment period is 21 days for Finnish customers and 30 for foreign customers.

Findata charges interest annually on overdue invoices in accordance with the amount laid down in section 4 of the Interest Act (633/1982) and complying with the provisions otherwise laid down in the Interest Act. Instead of charging interest on overdue payments, Findata may alternatively charge a flat-rate late payment fee of EUR 10 if the quantity of interest charged would be smaller than this.
