Get started – limited company

The 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 50,000 in share capital.

Company registration

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 person when it has been registered with the Swedish Companies Registration Office. Registration provides nationwide protection of the company name.

Register limited company (apply online)

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.
