The application fee must be paid in advance.

It is possible to make the payment electronically to the Swedish Enforcement Authority using the specified account details.

What fees apply?

If you are applying for a European order for payment in Sweden, you must pay an application fee. The application fee must be paid in advance. That means that the application fee must have been paid in order for the Swedish Enforcement Authority to commence the processing of the application for a European order for payment. Payment is made when submitting the application on Form A. When you have submitted the application, you will receive an order from the Swedish Enforcement Authority containing information on how to pay the application fee. You will not receive an order if you have already attached evidence to the application that the application fee has been paid into the Swedish Enforcement Authority's account.

How much must I pay?

At present, you must pay an application fee of SEK 300.

What happens if I fail to pay the court fees in time?

If the application fee is not paid on time, the application will be rejected before the processing of the application has begun.

How can I pay the court fees?

You can pay the application fee for a European order for payment using the account details below. Specify the case number, the respondent's personal identity number or organisation registration number as the message when making the payment:

  • Plus giro: 95 59 39-4
  • IBAN: SE50 9500 0099 6034 0955 9394
  • BIC: NDEASESS

What must I do after payment?

You do not need to do anything after you have paid the application fee on time. The Swedish Enforcement Authority monitors receipt of the payment by the authority. Once the payment has been entered in the books, the Swedish Enforcement Authority then begins processing your application for a European order for payment.
