The TE Offices will take the necessary proactive measures resulting from the changes. The customers will be notified of the transfer of customer relationships and pending administrative matters to another TE Office by letter and through the e-Services.

The transfer of unfinished matters and customer relationships and the management of matters according to the new county cannot begin before 1 January 2021. The administrative and other matters pending at the time and customer relationships will be transferred if the jurisdiction in them is determined by law on the basis of the client's municipality of residence or place of establishment.

If necessary, the ELY Centres will make a decision on the change of the domain of the TE Office under their authority in accordance with the county division, unless the TE Office's domain has already been tied to a county in accordance with the Division into Regions Act. Thus, all TE Offices' domains will be based on counties as of 1 January 2021, which means their domains will change according to the Government decision.
