The FAI has published the FAI Award Checklist and the FAI Tax Guidelines in the English language.
The FAI Award Checklist aims to support the arbitral tribunal in the drafting of arbitral awards under the Arbitration Rules and the Rules for Expedited Arbitration of the Finland Chamber of Commerce. The checklist is not exhaustive nor binding on the arbitral tribunal but intended to give general recommendations for a high-quality and enforceable award.
The purpose of the FAI Tax Guidelines is to draw the arbitrators’ attention to tax issues related to the arbitrator’s fee and expenses. The guidelines, however, do not exempt the arbitrator from verifying the tax treatment of his/her fee and expenses.
Both publications are also available in Finnish on our website.
