Annual reports – limited companies
A limited company must file its annual report with Bolagsverket every year. This rule also applies to dormant companies and companies in liquidation.
Depending on the size of the company and what type of company you are running, the annual report (årsredovisning) must include different parts, such as an auditor’s report and a cash flow statement.
A limited company in Sweden may choose to have its accounting currency in SEK or EUR. The accounting currency must be stated in the articles of association.
Keep the original
A limited company must keep its original annual report. The accounting documents a company sends to Bolagsverket must be certified copies of the original annual report.
Submit in time
A limited company must file its annual report (written in Swedish) with Bolagsverket within seven months from the company’s financial year end. If the annual report reaches Bolagsverket too late or if it is not complete, we will issue late filing penalties. A limited company can avoid late filing penalties only by submitting a complete annual report to Bolagsverket before the deadline. Please note that Bolagsverket has no legal possibility to defer the filing date.
