How you can participate
The main source of financing for the Finnish Forest Foundation is the voluntary sales promotion fee, which is paid in connection with timber trade. The foundation also accepts other donations.
The sales promotion fee is paid as follows:
- in stumpage sales: 0,2%
- in sales at delivered price: 0.1% of the value of the sale, with a minimum contribution of 8 EUR.
The seller and buyer of timber both contribute the same sum. The decision to make a contribution is taken by the seller. In so doing, the seller also obligates the buyer to make an equal contribution. The sales promotion fee is deductible in the taxation of timber sale proceeds.
Payment of the sales promotion fee is entered in the contract of sale. The buyer collects the fee from the seller in connection with the last trade instalment price and renders account to the Finnish Forest Foundation.
