Sweden Employer of record Services

Helping Businesses Expand Into Sweden With Expert EOR Services

Our employer of record (EOR) services supports your expansion into the third largest country in the European Union. 

Known to have some of the highest living standards in the world as well as a leading welfare system, it is no surprise that Sweden is one of the most popular places to live and work amongst employees. However, thanks to its relatively low levels of bureaucracy compared to its EU counterparts and open market economy, Sweden is fast becoming a popular country for new business ventures.

While its social and economic benefits are popular amongst businesses and employees alike, Sweden's 1982 Working Hours Act and Employment Protection Act  enforces strict legislation around employment, including: 

  • Working day must not exceed eight hours or 40 hours a week
  • Overtime is limited to 48 hours a week and should not exceed 200 hours per annum 
  • Overtime is generally paid at 50 to 100% of the base hourly wage 
  • Employees are entitled to 25 days of paid leave
  • Parental leave is set at 480 days at around 80% salary
  • Employees are protected from dismissal on the grounds of illness

The regulations set out in these acts are heavily protective of employees and whilst they contribute to Sweden's high living and working standards, they can prove challenging for businesses. In addition to employment regulations, visa requirements in Sweden add another hurdle for businesses to overcome. While EU residents do not need a visa to enter Sweden, non-EU residents require a Schengen Vias and work permit. This combined with the Working Hours Act, Employment Protection Act and the usual tax stipulations that come with global expansion, makes expansion into Sweden a challenging affair. This is where our expert EOR services come in. 

Sweden EOR Services - Proposal Request

What is an Employer of Record?

Many use the terms EOR and PEO interchangeably but both essentially manage the employment of your international hires. You are still responsible for the day-to-day management of your employee but an EOR takes responsibility for HR and employee management. Our Sweden EOR service includes:

  • Facilitating employment contracts
  • Complying with the Working Hours Act and Employment Protection Act
  • Paying taxes and social security contributions
  • Running payroll 
  • Providing employee benefits

In addition to this, an employer of record allows you to expand into Sweden without establishing a legal entity.

Why do I need an Employer of Record in Sweden?

In order to operate in a new country, you will need to establish a legal subsidiary. As well as extending your time to market considerably and requiring dedicated resource and staff, the process of setting up a legal entity is one full of red tape and compliance risks. Meanwhile, navigating unfamiliar employment laws on top of this can also be incredibly time consuming and costly. This is where our Employer of Record services come in. 

By outsourcing the management of your new employees in Sweden, you can reap the benefits of Sweden's prosperous economy and strong exports market without the lengthy, complex process of establishing a legal entity. With extensive experience with Sweden's 1982 Working Hours Act and Employment Protection Act you can be assured that your expansion into Sweden is handled compliantly and with due attention to the relevant regulations. 

Meanwhile,  we can also take charge of your employees' visa requirements, tax, employee onboarding and Sweden's complex social security system allowing you and your employees to reap the benefits of Sweden's high living standards risk free. 

Our extensive experience as a recruitment partner also provides us with the added knowledge around business best-practices in Sweden allowing you to compete in Sweden's competitive jobs market and become a sought-out employer in this top European location.
