Why Form a Company in Sweden
A Swedish Aktiebolag (AB) is equivalent to a Limited Liability Company in the UK. The legal entity is separate from the individuals who run it. For sole traders and partnerships, the individual’s personal assets are at risk if there is a claim against the organisation. However, shareholders in an AB company are only liable for the value of the share capital to which they subscribe. Only one Board Member, one Deputy and one Shareholder are required for a Sweden AB-Company Registration. The Board Member and Shareholder can be the same person, therefore it is beneficial to anyone looking at starting a business on their own.
Sweden is recognised as the 14th best country in the world to conduct business. Therefore, it is a respected country to form a company.
A Sweden Company Formation can be an easy and simple process. There is no visit required as everything can be carried out remotely, therefore reducing time and travel costs. Company details are completed online and the name is usually checked and approved within 48 hours. Certified copies of passports for Due Diligence are required.
Tax Information for your Sweden Company Registration
Proceeding with a Sweden Company Formation means that business can be conducted as a sole trader, or through a corporation. To conduct business in Sweden whether you are a natural person overseas, or a legal person, you may become liable for VAT, employers contributions and/or income tax.
Corporate tax is levied on the worldwide income of companies resident in Sweden and also on profits which come from activities carried out in Sweden through a branch or agency.
The corporate tax rate is 22%. The fiscal year for a sole trader is the calendar year and for a limited company, you can choose any of the 12 months. The assessment year is the year following the applicable financial year? For a limited company you can change from a calendar year to a split financial year, you would need to gain permission from the tax authorities. Tax returns are filed annually and should be submitted digitally within seven months of the end of the tax year.
As with most jurisdictions, the company name must be approved by the Company Registrar. The company name may be in any language, but must be unique and not contain certain words such as ‘bank’, ‘insurance’ and ‘group’ unless you have obtained special permission. Once you have chosen a company name, we can check with the Company Registrar in Sweden to see if the name is available for you.
Directors, Shareholders and Secretary
Directors: Only one director is required for a Sweden Company Formation. However, at least one Director must be resident in Sweden.
Annual general meetings may be held at any time during the year, can be attended via electronic means and be in any location.
