Obstacles

to payment

Substantial deterioration in the beneficiary's financial position in relation to the anticipated trend, disruptions in payments, such as outstanding tax debts and arrears on Business Finland loans, will prevent the payment of funding. If a payment plan for outstanding tax debts has been drawn up with the Tax Administration, they will not prevent the payment of funding.

Another obstacle to payment may be that the company has negative equity and the register entry required by law has not been made.
