The earning of Transport and Communications Minister Anne Berner was the highest among the cabinet ministers in 2015.
With her entrepreneurial background, Berner’s taxable earned income and capital income amounted to a total of 614,000 euros last year. 
Berner had revenues of 205,000 in earned income and 410,000 euros in capital income. Berner is one of the owners of Vallila Interior. Her revenues increased by nearly 50,000 euros last year.
The second highest-earning minister last year was Prime Minister Juha Sipilä. Sipilä’s taxable income last year amounted to 394,000 euros. 
The majority of Sipilä’s income, 247,000 euros, was capital income. His salary was 147,000 euros.
Sipilä’s income more than doubled from the previous year. Growth was high in both earned and capital income. His earned income growth is explained by the fact that Sipilä was promoted from MP to prime minister last year. Sipilä announced last year his ownership of, among other things, forest and substantial financial assets.
