There are four ways to pay your membership fee: bank transfer, e-invoice, direct payment or through your employer.
1.1 BANK TRANSFER: PRINTED INVOICE
If you want to pay by bank transfer, you get the option to pay the full annual membership fee in one transaction or in four instalments when you pay your first invoice. If you choose to pay in instalments, we will invoice you in January, April, August and October. We will post the invoice to your home.
1.2 BANK TRANSFER: ELECTRONIC INVOICE
Instead of a printed invoice you can choose to receive an electronic invoice through OmaPosti. Registering for the OmaPosti service allows you to receive invoices in OmaPosti, and you can also use the service to pay your invoices through online banking. The invoices look like normal printed invoices, and OmaPosti also works as an archive for your electronic invoices. Please note: You will receive a notification by email when an invoice has arrived in the service. This notification will be sent by Avoine Oy.
The Union also accepts payments via e-invoice.
You can order the e-invoice through your online bank. You will need the reference number of your latest invoice and your membership number.
The e-invoice is environmentally friendly, and it makes it easy to pay your invoice. E-invoices are easy to pay in your online bank with a single click, and there is no need to enter account or reference numbers. You can also choose automatic payment if you wish, in which case the invoice will be paid automatically on the due date without you having to confirm the payment. Invoicing through e-invoice is done annually or four times a year.
For more information about choosing the e-invoice, please contact your bank or the Union via firstname.lastname@example.org or tel. 010 231 0350.
3. DIRECT PAYMENT
Direct payment is a new payment method which, together with the e-invoice, has replaced the direct debit. Direct debit was removed from use 31.12.2013. If you do not have access to online banking, you can choose to pay your invoice by direct payment. The direct payment works in the same way as the direct debit. Invoicing through direct payment is done annually or four times a year.
You can enter into a direct payment agreement at your local bank branch. You will need the reference number of your latest invoice and your membership number.
4. COLLECTION BY YOUR EMPLOYER
If you have a permanent or long-term job, many employers offer to pay your membership fee to the Union directly from your salary.
In 2020, the membership fee is 333 euros. Your employer will collect 27,75 euros from your salary each month.
