It has a relatively high standard of living in general. To a large extent, it was achieved thanks to openness to foreign capital and various kinds of innovations. Registering a company in Stockholm or any other city in Sweden can access the following benefits.

Advantages of registering a company in Sweden

Forms of doing business and legal presence in Sweden

In Sweden, it is possible to open a business or otherwise establish a business presence in one of several forms:

  • A private limited company is a form of business in which the liability of the participants is limited solely to their contributions to the business. One or more participants can register a company. This is the most popular form of business chosen by non-residents. The minimum registered capital for this type of company is 25,000 SEK.
  • A public limited company is a form of company that is designed for larger businesses to attract large amounts of outside financing. The firm can offer shares on the stock exchange. The liability of shareholders is limited strictly to the value of their shares. The minimum share capital is 500,000 SEK.
  • A branch is an option that may be acceptable for a foreign company to enter the local market and start carrying out the same activities as those abroad at a minimal cost. However, a branch does not receive the status of a legal entity, and the parent company is fully responsible for the results of its activities. Therefore, in this case, a simple registration procedure will be required.
  • A representative office is another option for a non-resident company. After a simplified registration procedure, it can promote its goods/services and explore local markets in Sweden. However, the right to conduct business and the status of a legal entity is also not granted under this option.
