The Establishment Guide – A Supplement for UK Businesses

Over the past few years, the landscape has changed for UK businesses looking to expand into Sweden, whether through exports or by establishing a business. Relevant information can sometimes be difficult to find, or at least comes from a variety of sources. 

In order to help UK businesses to navigate the new rules, and given our respective roles in the promotion of trade and investment, the Department for International Trade (DIT) at the British Embassy in Stockholm, the British-Swedish Chamber of Commerce (BSCC), and Invest Stockholm decided to work together to create this supplementary guide for UK businesses that are keen to grow in the Swedish market, which builds on Invest Stockholm’s existing Establishment Guide. 

This guide is comprised of six sections, each covering an area that has seen some changes for UK business since 1 January 2021, authored by members of the British-Swedish Chamber of Commerce that are experts in their fields. 

The sections are: 

1 Customs by Ecus

2 Work and Residence Permits by Global Goes Local

3 Establishing in Sweden by Eversheds Sutherland

4 Banking by SEB

5 Taxation by Accountor

6 Talent Attraction by Michaël Berglund Executive Recruitment
