Reorientation support

The page was last modified:

The reorientation support (“omställningsstöd”) is a form of subsidy designed to help businesses with fixed expenses if they suffer considerable losses of turnover due to the coronavirus. Here is also information if you have received support for short-time work allowance from the Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth and are applying for reorientation support.

On this page you will find information about:

  1. When and where can I apply for the support?
  2. Proposal for extension
  3. If you have received short-time work allowance from the Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth and are applying for reorientation support

When and where can I apply for the support

The government has decided to add May to September 2021 as new periods to the reorientation support.

The application for the support periods May and June 2021 are open until August 31.

The support is applied for via My pages on skatteverket.se (in Swedish)

Proposal for extension


The government has also proposed extending the reorientation support to  particularly affected companies. Today, there is support for June-July 2020 and the government wants to extend it from August 2020-September 2021. No decision has been made yet.

If you have received short-time work allowance from the Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth and are applying for reorientation support

If you want to apply for reorientation support and have previously received, or applied for, short-time work allowance, you need to report how much support you have received from the Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth. You can see all your approved amounts and submitted information in the Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth's e-service My application (Min ansökan).

To make it easier for companies with more than 25 short-time employees, we have developed an Excel sheet that can help you with your calculations.

This is how the Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth calculate the support for short-time work allowance

The amount of support is calculated based on the information you have submitted to the Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth each month. The calculations are based on decisions from the Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth and are a combination of provisionally paid support, reconciliations, and any revoked support.

The calculation is made as follows:

  • Ordinary monthly salary (max SEK 44 000 per month) x part of the month x agreed level x attendance quota x 98,6%
  • Part of the month = days with short-time work allowance /days in the month
  • Attendance quota = days with short-time work allowance – days absent / days with short-time work allowance
