3. How to set up global payroll in Sweden

Once you've determined the best Sweden payroll option for your company, you'll need to collect some information from employees in order to add them to your payroll.

When an employee begins working and provides you with their tax deduction card, they become a part of the social security system and are eligible for benefits.

Employers must pay multiple taxes for each of their employees. Sweden's social insurance system, which covers sickness, disability, retirement, and other benefits, is primarily funded by employer contributions, which typically amount to around 31.42% of an employee's gross salary. Foreign employers, on the other hand, contribute slightly more than 21% of the employee's gross pay.

When you set up your Sweden payroll, you must also ensure that the correct taxes are deducted from your employees' pay. Employers are responsible for deducting income tax, which varies depending on an employee's earnings. Workers are required to pay municipal tax, which varies depending on where they live.

Employers who have more than five employees are required to notify the Employment Service. Additionally, businesses are required to deal with relevant trade unions.

Following talks, the employer must deliver a written and in-person notice of termination. If this is not practicable, a registered letter to the employee's address may be sent.

9. Compensation in Sweden

There is no national minimum wage in Sweden. Minimums are established via collective bargaining agreements negotiated by trade unions.

10. Working hours and overtime in Sweden

In Sweden, the standard work week is 40 hours spread over five days. Workers are entitled to a five-hour break after five consecutive hours of work and a one-and-a-half-hour break after every twenty-four-hour period.

11. Employee benefits in Sweden

Sweden provides universal health care, with the healthcare system being mostly administered at the county and municipal levels. Although private health insurance is accessible, only a tiny proportion of Swedish citizens have it.

If an employee is a member of a union, the CBA may require that he or she get private health insurance. Private health insurance is utilized to bypass the queue of public health insurance and give cash upfront rather than paying out of pocket and waiting for public health insurance to repay them. In Sweden, this benefit is part of a packaged plan that also includes a pension and certain protective benefits.

Some employers provide food coupons, corporate vehicles, stock incentive programs, and/or additional vacation time

Private pension plans for both employers and employees are also extremely common in Sweden. Non-EU nationals working in Sweden are usually required to have private pension insurance in order to get a Swedish work visa. In Sweden, it is not obligatory for an employer to provide an additional pension, but it is quickly becoming a popular and desired supplementary perk. It is standard practice to provide workers with a private pension once they have completed their trial term. It is customary for them to set aside 5-10% of their monthly gross income.
