New website on working and running a business in Sweden


What rules apply if you want to go to Sweden to work or run a business? How do work permits, wages and employment work in Sweden? You will find answers to these questions and more at the new website, where information from a variety of public authorities is included.

Individuals who want to find out about the Swedish labour market have previously had to consult several different websites. The idea behind is to offer all the information in one place. At the website, you will get an overview of the most important regulations and formalities you have to go through in order to work or run a business in Sweden. It will also be of help for Swedish businesses who want to employ workers from abroad.

The government´s objective with the website is to make it easier to run or establish a business in Sweden. Moreover, the website highlights the individual´s rights as an employee.

Eight public agencies have collaborated in creating the website: Swedish Public Employment Service (Arbetsförmedlingen), Swedish Work Environment Authority (Arbetsmiljöverket), Försäkringskassan (the Swedish Social Insurance Agency), National Board of Trade (Kommerskollegium), Swedish Migration Agency (Migrationsverket), Swedish Tax Agency (Skatteverket), Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth (Tillväxtverket) and Swedish Institute (Svenska institutet). The Swedish Institute has lead the project.
