Succeed in Finland with Greenstep!

Greenstep's operating model has been developed from the basis of growth and international financial management processes. Supporting global companies is close to our hearts.

Whether expanding to Finland or already having operations here, we can support companies of all sizes operating in various fields. We can help you expand to Finland develop the Finnish subsidiary's business by providing world-class financial management and HR services. As our partner, you will have access to 500 financial management experts familiar with the unique features of international companies' business and Finnish laws, tax, HR, and accounting practices.

Together, we make sure that your company's operations in the Finnish market run as smoothly and successfully as possible!

1. Local expertise in financial management

A great deal of financial knowledge is needed when international companies must accommodate local and international requirements. Accounting and reporting must be performed by the requirements of Finnish authorities, while the reporting practices and expectations must also match the global parent company. Yet, with international expertise, the accounting and reporting processes can be designed to support the business of both the subsidiary/branch and the parent company.

Greenstep's financial management experts have long and extensive experience in handling the financial affairs of international clients. You can outsource your financial management to us to the extent of your needs as we handle everything from the subsidiary's VAT and tax returns to the accounting of the entire international organization. Our experts also assist you with any other needs for a financial management expert, such as preparing annual financial statements, applying IFRS regulations, tax-related accounting issues, and translations.

The interaction inside the group is an essential part of a functioning organization. Through our CFO services, we also provide reliable expertise in financial planning and process development and handle, for example, the company's reporting to the parent company's management. Our CFO experts are available according to the customer's needs either on a project basis or as part of an ongoing process in the form of an Interim Controller, working part-time or full-time in the company's CFO role. Our financial experts are also happy to help international companies in special situations, such as corporate reorganizations.

2. Improving personnel matters with the help of an HR expert

Strong, local HR expertise is needed to operate in a new country. Finding the right local partner in the target country is essential for the company's success as a local partner knows the local legislation, can help find the right people, and advise on various HR and salary issues.

Greenstep's versatile services enable an international company to have a reliable local partnership in all matters related to personnel. We offer our clients both outsourced payroll accounting and continuous and project-type operational HR services, such as preparing employment documents and assisting in managing employee benefits and occupational health and safety issues. Our HR and payroll teams work closely together, and with our diverse expertise, we can answer even the most difficult questions about payroll or various collective agreements.

Through our strategic HR services, we help international companies unify their organizational culture. We can also unify communication practices and assist in the recruitment and orientation of employees. The core of our HR and Payroll Services is to provide smooth collaboration with the customer and dynamic scaling of services according to their needs - just like in anything else we do!

3. Bring your organization together with NetSuite

The world is getting smaller as internationalization in the business world increases. Today, information is available in real-time through a variety of systems. Modern cloud-based business systems make it easier for international companies to manage their business.

Modern systems and our professional staff make an international company's financial management and reporting even smoother. At Greenstep, we recommend using NetSuite for all global companies. NetSuite is a fully cloud-based ERP software that allows you to easily track the status of all your company's core activities in one go. NetSuite is currently used in more than 200 countries worldwide, and the system's possibilities are endless.

Greenstep's NetSuite team has many years of experience in business system design and implementation. We even received Oracle's "Outstanding Performance of the Year, Western Europe 2020" award in spring 2021. If the international company is already in the NetSuite system, we will professionally assist in localizing the Finnish subsidiary to the customer's NetSuite system. If necessary, we will also integrate the Bezala travel invoice system and local banking systems into the organization's NetSuite to facilitate financial tracking. With our solutions, we can also automate the financial processes of the entire international company into one efficient entity as needed.

Via Finland to the Nordic and Baltic countries!

Finland is usually thought of as a small country, but it also offers international companies great opportunities for business development. Here you will find highly trained employees, a strong startup and entrepreneurial spirit, and world-class technological know-how, to name a few. Finland is also known for its low level of corruption and independent judiciary, and it is one of the world's safest countries. In addition, Finland also offers a natural step to nearby regions, such as the Baltics and other Nordic countries.

In addition to the offices in Finland, Greenstep operates in Sweden, Norway and Estonia. Our experts provide local services from Norrköping, Stockholm, Moss and Tallinn. Although the corporate culture and many practices appear to be very similar across countries, attention still needs to be paid to, among other things, local laws, practices, and banking. All our offices work closely together across borders, making expanding to Sweden and Estonia even smoother as a Greenstep customer.

Elsewhere in the world, partners in our extensive MSI Global network help handle your company's tax and regulatory returns per the laws of your destination country.
