Different Types of Business Structures in Sweden


Limited Company

This type of entity is also known as ‘Sw. aktiebolag, AB'. Usually, one shareholder would be required to form this type of entity. The limited liability principle would apply to the shareholders and directors of this type of entity. There is no personal liability of the shareholders. Under limited company, there are two types of companies which include:

Public Limited Company

A public limited company is allowed to offer shares in a public stock exchange. All compliances related to the limited company have to be filed with the Swedish Companies Registration Office. This is an investor's most preferred business structure for company registration in Sweden. All limited companies in Sweden have to pay a specific amount of corporate income tax, levied at 21.4%.

Trading Partnership

This type of entity is also known as ‘Sw. handelsbolag, HB'. All compliance related to the Trading Partnership must be filed with the Swedish Companies Registration Office. There would be two or more individuals known as partners to incorporate this type of entity. The name of the partnership must contain the words 'handelsbolag'. The principle of limited liability is not present for the partners; hence it would make them personally liable. Partners have to file personal income tax and also contribute to social security.

Limited Partnership

This type of entity is also known as ‘Sw. kommanditbolag, KB'. There will be more than two partners who can either be a natural person or a legal entity. One partner would be considered the general partner, and the other would be considered a limited partner. The liability of the general partner would be unlimited, but the liability of the limited partner would be limited to the amount of capital contribution made. The name of the partnership must contain the words 'kommanditbolag’. All compliances related to the Limited Partnership have to be filed with the Swedish Companies Registration Office.

Branch Office

This type of entity is also known as 'Sw. Filial, Branch'. The branch office is a mere extension of the parent company and is allowed to carry out activities under the scope of the foreign parent company. There would be no separate legal entity for the branch office; however, the liability would be under the foreign parent company. The name of the partnership must contain the words ‘Filial’.
