In order to collect the tax, the Financial Management of the Helsinki city keeps a dog register. The abovementioned law also requires that the dog owner file a notice to the registry before the end of February in the year after the dog has been acquired or moved to Helsinki.
The dog owner must additionally file a notice of change if:
1. the dog is being kept permanently outside Helsinki
2. the dog has been handed over to another owner
3. the dog has died.
The notice must be given also in cases where the dog is moved to another address within Helsinki.
