Limited Company, called "Osakeyhtiö, Oy" in Finnish, is the most popular legal form of business in Finland.

Limited Company is a corporate structure where the members of the company cannot be held personally liable for the company's debts or liabilities. Limited company is registered to Finnish Trade Register, and has its own business ID.

Limited company formation does not require a registered address in Finland. If you want to register a limited company solo, you can be the only ordinary board member, shareholder and the CEO of the company. For this, you will need another person to work as your deputy member of the board.
