Tallinn holds yet another free event on consumer rights

The traditional Tallinn Consumer Rights Day will be held on 2 April at 11:00 in the Great Hall of the Estonian National Library (Tõnismägi tn 2) to address topical and practical issues related to consumers.

Consumer law has become a very complex legal discipline combining provisions from other branches of law across Estonian and European legislation. This year’s Consumer Rights Day looks into topical issues that stem from the concerns and questions of individuals who have addressed the municipal authorities and extend beyond mere purchase and sale of goods.

Lawyer and educator Evi Hindpere from Raid & Ko Real Estate Agency and Law Office makes a presentation where she explains how to solve problems related to lease contracts in a legally proper manner and without resorting to excessive emotions. Natali Promet from the Health Board talks about requirements related to cosmetics and household chemicals, whereas Henri Lindeberg from the Tax and Customs Board addresses payment solutions for small businesses, business accounts, and simplified salary payments. Taxpayers will learn how the basic exemption enacted in 2018 affected individual earnings and how they can keep an eye on their income through the e-Tax app. Professor Emeritus of the Tallinn University of Technology and renowned food specialist Raivo Vokk provides an insight into modern foodstuffs and healthy diets.
Entry to the event is free of charge, and simultaneous interpretation into Russian is provided. Questions to speakers can be e-mailed in advance to tarbijainfo@tallinnlv.ee. For more information please call 640 4232 or visit www.tallinn.ee/tarbija
