Instead of paper invoices, it is now possible to receive invoices from Financial Management Services using various electronic methods – choose the one that suits you best! Please note that we can only deliver invoices addressed to you using one electronic service at a time.
e-invoice – a service provided by banks
If you have online banking codes and wish to receive your invoices electronically directly to your online bank, you can conclude an e-invoicing agreement through your own online bank. For the invoicer, select the City of Helsinki Financial Management Services (Helsingin kaupunki – Taloushallintopalvelu) and for the identifier, enter the invoice recipient’s personal identity code in the format ddmmyy-xxxX or ddmmyyAxxxX. Additional information about children day care e-invoicing agreements, see the link www.hel.fi/talpa.
Direct payment – a service provided by banks
Direct payment is a good option if you do not have online banking codes. Please contact your bank to make a direct payment agreement.
