A sole trader usually has no obligation to register with Bolagsverket, with the exception of large sole trader businesses.
If you want to protect your business name you must register it with us. Read more about this under the header Register business name and activities.
You can apply for registration using the form Registration of a new company, number 903 e .
You can register online by using the e-services on the website verksamt.se. The information in the e-services is in Swedish only and you need a Swedish electronic identification to sign the application online. You can obtain a Swedish electronic identification if you have a Swedish personal identity number.
If you register online, you can apply for F-tax (F-skatt) and register for VAT accounting with the Swedish Tax Agency (Skatteverket) at the same time.
The fee for registering as a sole trader is SEK 1 400 when you use a form and SEK 900 when you use the e-services. Please remember to pay the fee as soon as you have submitted your application. We will start the application process when we have received your payment.
