Get started – limited companyThe page was last modified:
A limited company can be started by one or more natural persons or legal entities. When starting a limited company, you must have at least SEK 25 000 in share capital.
1. Register with the Swedish Companies Registration office
A limited company must be registered with the Swedish Companies Registration Office (Bolagsverket). A limited company only becomes a legal entity when it has been registered with the Swedish Companies Registration Office. Registration provides nationwide protection of the company name.
2. Tax and VAT registration
The company must then register with the Swedish Tax Agency (Skatteverket). The company needs to apply for F-tax and VAT registration and, if relevant, register as an employer.
3. Other permits
There might be other permits or registrations that you need to consider when starting your business.
In our service Find permits you can find permits by category or in our list from A to Ö. You can also find information on permits and applications which are specific for a certain profession.
Do you have a Swedish identity number?
If you have a Swedish identity number and e-identification (e-legitimation in Swedish) you can use our e-services on verksamt.se (Mina sidor) for company registration. However, these are only available in Swedish.
