Some artists grants accidentally paid twice in December
An error has occurred in the payment of December’s artist grants. Some grant recipients may have received payment twice, either in full or in part. Any double payments will be cancelled from the accounts to which they were paid, so no action is required by grant recipients to return the extra amount at this stage.
The cancellation of payments will be made by the banks. Some cancellations can be made automatically, but it is possible that some grant recipients will be asked for consent from their banks.
The error occurred when the Finnish Government Shared Services Centre for Finance and HR (Palkeet) submitted payment data to banks in connection with the introduction of payments banks. We apologise for the inconvenience.
