Checklist for all new employees 

For salary and correct taxation

  • When you arrive in Sweden you will need to go to the tax office (Skatteverket) to get a Swedish ID-number. Make sure that you get a copy of the application with a stamp so that you can send this to your HR-contact so that your contract can be registered by our salary division.
  • Register your bank account number with Nordea
    • KTH's employer identification number (arbetsgivarnummer) at Nordea is 505751.
    • If Nordea do not have the bank transfer order, the salary will automatically be paid through the paying-out form which is sent to your address (see and change your address in the Self-reporting system, Mina personuppgifter/My personal data).
  • Submit your tax percentage note  (A-skattesedel) to your HR administrator to get the right tax deduction on your salary.
