Enterprises must be registered in the ELMA register in order to receive EHF invoices.

Tax deductions for contributions paid to NPE

The general rule for deductions is governed by Section 6-1 of the Tax Act. According to this provision, deductions are made "for costs incurred in acquiring, maintaining or securing taxable income".

The tax office considers contributions to NPE to be covered by this provision, as commercial activity is being carried out and the claim for payment is statutory. Contributions which have been paid are therefore deductible from general income.
