Questions About E-Invoicing in Sweden?

Contact our experts


Business-to-government (B2G) e-invoicing has been mandatory in Sweden since April 1, 2019.

What Types of Businesses Does This Apply to?

This requirement should apply to all taxpayers established in and outside Sweden selling to public authorities.

Governmental Body Responsible for E-invoicing in Sweden

The Agency for Digital Government (Myndigheten för Digital Förvaltning (DIGG))

Penalties for Not Adhering to Sweden’s E-invoice Mandates

The penalty is determined by taking into account the supplier’s financial conditions and circumstances.

What does the e-invoicing process in Sweden look like?

DIGG and the SFTI (Single Face to Industry) recommend that taxpayers adopt and send invoices through Peppol.

Public entities may have their own invoicing portal, so taxpayers who only send a few invoices to public entities can issue e-invoices through the specific invoicing portal, if available.

B2B e-invoicing is voluntary but is a reasonably common practice.

Is SAF-T Needed in Sweden?

SAF-T has not been introduced in Sweden.
