First make sure that you are a job-seeker at the TE Office. Inform the TE Office about your part-time work and entrepreneurial activities. The easiest way to do that is through their online service.
Then fill in the application in our online service OmaYTK. If you are applying for daily allowance for the first time, do not send the application until two weeks from starting the work. If you are already receiving daily allowance, continue to apply for it as before.
Remember to send the application within three months from the date from which on you apply for daily allowance. Do not wait to get the necessary attachments as you can submit them afterwards. The most important thing is that we receive your application within three months – the daily allowance cannot be paid retroactively when that time limit expires.
State your working hours in the application and append a salary calculation concerning the application period. When processing the application, we aim at matching the application period to your salaried period. In that case we may ask you to supplement the application. By doing that we can in the future pay your daily allowance as quickly and regularly as possible. See our schedule for the handling of applications.
It is not necessary to report the working hours for part-time entrepreneurial activities. Just append a copy of the confirmed taxation of your company to the application. If the entrepreneurial activities have just started or essential changes have occurred in them after the latest confirmed taxation, you should submit another report on the company’s income instead of the taxation decision.
If you work through an invoicing company, the working hours need not be reported. Just send us the salary calculation.
When you apply for adjusted daily allowance for the first time, you need to append your employment contract to the application. The employment contract includes information e.g. on the grounds of the salary and the working hours. We need that information for processing the application.
In order to be able to calculate the amount of the adjusted daily allowance we also need your pay slip. When you start part-time work we aim at timing the application period in such a way that it matches the salary payment period. That will speed up the payment of daily allowance in the future.
If your working hours are not shown in the pay slip, we will request a separate specification of the weekly working hours.
The easiest way to send the appendices to us is through the OmaYTK service. See here tips for converting a paper document into an electronic file.
