Urpilainen has always been vocal in her opposition of tax havens, calling for a thorough investigation into how much the state loses in tax revenue through companies and private citizens’ use of tax havens.  

"”I’ve requested a report on this figure as a minister but such a figure hasn’t been available as the matter has never been investigated. I firmly believe that such an investigation should be launched,” Urpilainen told Helsingin Sanomat on Sunday, while attending SDP’s membership cruise.
