It was the first year in which Naakka violated the tax administration’s € 100,000 revenue disclosure threshold, and this year’s increase can be explained by the fact that the approval of free products and services must be notified to the tax authorities.

Singer and actor Tuure Boelius is also YouTuber, which has more than 150,000 subscribers and earned nearly € 126,000, also breaking the € 100,000 barrier for the first time in 2019.
