I have been running my own business since 1998, first as private trader and since 2004 as owner of Relipe Ltd. I graduated from Helsinki Secreterial College in 1995. As an accountant I need to be aware about all the latest amendments to laws concerning taxation, accounting and business management. Therefore I study and update my knowledge continuosly.
Financial administration as line of business
I have been active in different lines of business. As an entrepreneur I have always been willing to advice other start-up entrepreneurs. I am also interested in organizing the finances and accounting so that things could be managed easier and more effectively.

The idea of financial administration services is to help you to manage your business better and easier.
