The majority of Swedish companies, associations and legal entities must register beneficial ownership information with Bolagsverket. Newly registered companies and associations must register beneficial ownership information within four weeks from their registration date.
What is beneficial ownership?
A beneficial owner is someone who ultimately owns or controls a company, association or other type of legal entity. A beneficial owner can also be someone who benefits from someone else acting on their behalf.
What is the purpose of the register?
In 2015, a new Anti-Money Laundering EU Directive entered into force. Its purpose is to combat money-laundering and financing of terrorism. The directive requires every EU member state to implement a central register containing details of company beneficial owners.
The purpose of the register is to give banks, the Swedish financial intelligence police unit and others access to information about who has significant control of a company.
This price is for our service and the company itself will be issued an invoice of 250 SEK that needs to be paid directly to the Swedish Company Registry (Bolagsverket). The e-service is available in Swedish only.
