Youth Cultural Exchange Program Au Pair in Finland

Finland has not confirmed the European Council’s treaty on the location of Au Pairs, and therefore The Finnish Immigration Service (Maahanmuuttovirastu) follows this treaty only for applicable parts.
According The Finnish Immigration Service, your status as an Au Pair is comparable to that of a family member. You participate in the everyday activities of the family, and your daily amount of work must not exceed the amount of domestic work and child-minding performed by other members of the family.
If for some reason you cannot continue working and living with your host family, you may change your host family. You may work as an au pair in Finland for up to one year only. You have not worked as an au pair before, in Finland or in another country.
If you wish, you may apply for an extension on other grounds.

Taxes

Au Pair work in Finland is subject to taxation. When Au Pair come in Finland, he/she acquires a Finnish tax card, and has to complete a tax return. The tax card needs to be applied for at the Finnish revenue board VERO. For this purpose the Au Pair contract needs to be shown to Vero. Please inquire with the revenue board VERO about tax rates for the pocket money and on how far board and lodging is taxable as value of benefits in kind.
The host family deducts the tax from the Au Pair's salary and pays it to the revenue board. There are different tax cards. Please ask the local revenue board (verotoimisto) which one is best in the individual case. If it is done correctly from the beginning, one can save money.
