Annual fees for transport licence holders and service providers invoiced in February 2024
Transport licence holders and those notified as service providers are charged an annual fee. If an operator no longer provides transport services, it is advisable to cancel the transport licence or notification. The annual fee is charged to all licence holders and service providers entered in the Transport Register on 1 January 2024.
The processing fees for transport licenses have not yet been confirmed for 2024, but the annual fee for license holders has been proposed to be 100 euros, and the annual fee for service providers to be 35 euros.
Annual fee for licence holders and service providers
All holders of a taxi, passenger or goods transport licence whose Operating Licence is valid on 1 January 2024 must pay an annual fee.
An annual fee also applies to service providers (goods transport, brokering and dispatch services, and integrated mobility services) with a valid notification entry in the register on 1 January 2024.
The annual fee is company-specific, and the number of valid transport licences held by the company does not affect the amount of the fee. If a company holds several valid taxi, passenger and goods transport licences, the fee is charged only once.
A service provider’s annual fee is not charged if the company holds a valid transport licence.
Changes to licences included in the annual fee
Any changes made to a transport licence during its validity are included in the annual fee and there are no separate charges for changes. The same applies to changes to notifications. Such a free change is, for example, a change of the transport manager.
The annual fees are also used to cover the costs of the supervision of licence holders and other administrative tasks associated with the Transport Register data on transport licences and transport operators.
Unnecessary transport licences or service provider notifications should be cancelled by 31 December 2023
If a company no longer operates transport services and wants to avoid paying the annual fee, it should request the cancellation of its licence or notifications. No annual fee is charged if the request to cancel a licence or notification arrives at the Finnish Transport and Communications Agency (Traficom) at the latest on 31 December 2023 and if the operations subject to the licence or notification are reported to end by the end of 2023.
If a licence or notification is valid on 1 January 2024 when the fees are determined, the fee will be charged even if no services are operated under the licence or notification. The annual fee will not be refunded or reimbursed if a company ends its operations or requests the cancellation of its licence or notification at a later point after the fee has been determined.
Cancellation requests can be submitted conveniently in the electronic services. No fee is charged for decisions concerning the cancellation of a licence and the removal of a register entry. Services can be found on Traficom's Digikaista - Our e-services:
