Consulting in Finland

Postby robinroos » Wed Feb 17, 2016 11:47 am

Hi Folks

I am based in the UK, but flying fortnightly to Finland to undertake a consulting engagement on behalf of a UK-based technology/services company (which I do not own and in which I have no equity stake).

I stay in a cheap hotel in Helsinki when in-country.

The end client in Helsinki is suggesting I take an apartment for the duration of the engagement.

Would doing so change my tax status? I *believe* I have no obligation to tax in Finland at this time....

Thanks, Robin.

In theory it should not affect the status as long as it is not your main address (and center of interest) and you stay there less than 183 days/year.
You should check with your accountant if you are a contractor...
