Finnish speakers - which is right for which?

Thank you for your help:

Kiitos avustanne
Kiitos avustasi

Which of these is correct? Or if both are correct, for which situations or in which dialects?

Kiitos! :)

Both are ok.

Kiitos avustasi refers to only one person, and kiitos avustanne to two or more people.

Kiitos avustanne can be used as a formal version and you can address only one people/organization with it to sound super polite.

It's ok and very acceptable to say only kiitos avusta (without referring to the person).
Thank you so much!
