  4. Permitting resident entrepreneurs to continue applying the tax exemption for minor activities in Finland, even if their annual turnover in the EU exceeds 100,000 euros.
  5. Introducing a special system where the tax exemption for small companies would apply to countries beyond the member state of establishment.
  6. Clarifying that the procedure for correcting quarterly declarations related to the special system will be governed by the VAT Act and the Taxation Procedure Act of Self-Initiated Taxes.
