Direct message exchange
In direct message exchange the declarant sends XML messages to Customs via Internet. For sending the messages the company must have a certificate granted by the Population Register Centre of Finland which is subject to charge.
Customs form “934e – Application for message exchange with Finnish Customs” is used when applying for authorisation to use direct message exchange http://tulli.fi/en/e-services/services/message-exchange. The Customs testing official contacts the customer and agrees on testing the system. After approved testing Customs grants authorisation for sending declarations as XML messages.
