Background | A non-restricted equity capital fund (SVOP fund)

An invested non-restricted equity capital fund (“SVOP fund”) is a balance sheet item in the accounts of a Finnish limited liability company. Under the principles of the Finnish Companies Act (624/2006) it’s understood as the company’s non-restricted equity. The reserves invested in the SVOP fund relates to investments made in the company or profits made by the company. Therefore, shareholders can distribute funds from the SVOP fund investment.

Normally a shareholder or other third party may make an investment in the SVOP fund. In most cases, the SVOP investment is made by the company’s shareholder. Due to taxation reasons no interest is normally remunerated to the SVOP investment.
