Salary payments – register your account number with Swedbank
You must register your account number
In order to ensure that your salary (or other reimbursement) is paid into the correct account, you must register your account number with Swedbank. You must do this, no matter which bank you use. Swedbank customers must also register their account number. If this is not done, there is a risk that you will receive salary in the form of a giro form. Remember that you must personally be the account holder (or joint account holder) of the account you register.
Proceed as follows
Register your account number at www.swedbank.se/kontoregister. Registration can be carried out either with or without electronic proof of identity (BankID). It is also possible to register your account by visiting a Swedbank or Sparbank office.
The account number has two parts, a clearing number and an account number. Clearing numbers from Swedbank/Sparbank have five digits, while those of other banks have four. A clearing number is not to be specified for a salary account (personkonto) at Nordea.
Note that Personkonto is to be checked only when registering a salary account (personkonto) at Nordea (where the account number is the same as your personal identification number (personnummer)). If this is not the case, check Bankkonto.

Income-tax demand new employees
New employees are required to submit an income-tax demand note (skattsedel) to their workplace. You can order a demand note from the Swedish Tax Agency’s website. If you do not submit a demand note, then a so-called penalty tax according to taxation table plus 10 % extra will be withheld. Any tax adjustments should be submitted without delay to your payroll administrator.
