Employer Debt Collection

The employer and member of the Union agree together on the collection of the membership fees with a collection agreement form.

The Union informs the employer at the beginning of December every year of the level of the membership fee, which will be valid for one calendar year at a time.

Collection, accounting and membership fee clarifications

Collection of membership fee

The employer shall collect the membership fee for the wage calculation period and accounts the sum to Trade Union Pro's bank account by the due date:

• FI76 1521 3000 1039 47

• FI58 5780 0710 0208 48

• FI38 8000 1601 5016 05.

Clarification schedule

• Membership fees detained between 1 July 2018 and 31 December 2018 are accounted by 31 January 2019.

• Membership fees detained between 1 January 2019 and 30 June 2019 are accounted by 15 August 2019.

• Membership fees detained between 1 July 2019 and 31 December 2019 are accounted by 31 January 2020.

• Quarterly clarifications are also an option.

The clarification must include the following details:

  • Trade Union Pro's code 022

  • name of the employer

  • employer's accounting ID (the employer's business ID without the hyphen)

  • member's social security number and name

  • amount of the trade union fee and the period of time the fee has been collected.

As the employment ends, the collection termination notification must be filled in. 

Delivering the clarification to the Union

As a TYVI file (TYVI = data streams between companies and the authorities)

  • Software operated via the Internet and offered by operators Aditro Human Resources, Itella-Pro, and WM-data Oy.

  • Pro and the above-mentioned operators have agreed on sending the trade union fee information in electronic form via the TYVI system.

  • TYVI is supervised and developed by the Ministry of Finance. For additional information, please visit www.tieke.fi.

As an e-mail file

  • The file must be an ASCII or ANSI text file prepared by the payroll administration.

  • The contents of the file must follow the standard field list.

  • Note! The Union does not accept files sent in spreadsheet computation or text processing form.

  • YAP system: As the employer also reports membership fees of other trade unions in the file format to the YAP system, Pro's clarification information can be added to the file with the code 022. YAP delivers the information to all unions, including Pro.

By mail

Clarification lists must be sent to the following address: Ammattiliitto Pro / työnantajaperintä, P.O. Box 183, FI-00181 Helsinki.

As member-specific reference data

  • Member-specific references include information on the person and on the payment period so the employer does not have to make separate clarification.

  • Member-specific references can be used for the membership fees of 1–5 persons accounted on a monthly basis. Each person has his or her own month-specific reference number.

Pro sends information on the trade union fee to the tax administration

The tax administration shall deduct the membership fees of trade unions automatically. Pro informs the tax authorities annually on the trade union fees paid.
