About the insurance agreement

The insurance agreement that a company signs with Fora is a complete package of collectively agreed insurances. However, the contents of this package will vary for wage-earners, salaried employees and business owners. 

All current and future employees who receive a salary are covered by the insurances, regardless of their type of employment. The insurance agreement is signed for all employees; it is not possible to take out insurances for individual employees.

For wage-earners, the insurance agreement provides comprehensive insurance cover, including an occupational pension.

Salaried employees and business owners have insurance cover for accidents that occur at work.

Additional insurances will be necessary if the company continues to operate in Sweden after 12 months. Companies with temporary operations in Sweden have a general exemption from Föräldrapenningtillägg, FPT (Supplemental Parental Benefit Insurance), Försäkring om avgångsbidrag, AGB (Redundancy Payment Insurance) and Trygghetsfonden TSL (Employment Transition).

Exemption

Toggle

Companies intending to run temporary operations in Sweden may apply for exemption from AGS and SAF-LO Collective Pension Insurance on the form ”Request for exemption”.

Certificates needed

When applying for exemption from Group Sickness Insurance, AGS, certificate A1 must be sent to Fora as proof that the employee in question is covered by a social insurance system in another EU/EES country.

In the event of application for exemption from SAF-LO Pensions Insurance, a certificate from the insurer must be sent to Fora as proof that occupational pension insurance premiums are being paid for the employee in another EU/EES country.

Decision about exemption

It is Fora that decides if the company will be granted exemption from Group Sickness Insurance (AGS) or SAF-LO Collective Pension Insurance for an employee. The exemption is valid for 12 months, starting from the first day the company operates in Sweden.

Companies domiciled outside the EU/EES may apply to the Labour Market Insurance Board for exemption from occupational insurances according to rules corresponding to those for companies domiciled within the EU/EES.

Signing the insurance agreement

Toggle

The insurance agreement with Fora is signed by completing a form.

Companies without collective agreement: The insurance agreement starts to apply from the date on which Fora receives the insurance registration.

Companies with collective agreement: Regardless of when Fora receives the insurance registration, the insurance agreement applies from the date on which the company is bound by a collective agreement. Fora invoices for the insurance agreement from the date that the collective agreement came into force.

Companies intending to run temporary operations in Sweden may apply for exemption from AGS and SAF-LO Collective Pension Insurance on the form ”Request for exemption”.

Cancelling the insurance agreement

Toggle

When your temporary operation in Sweden have ceased you may want to cancel your agreement. The only way to cancel the insurance agreement is to complete a special form. N.B. Please submit an extract from the company register showing the current authorized signatory.

After your agreement has been terminated, you will have to do your final report so your account can be settled.

Please consider the following

The insurance agreement may not be terminated as long as there are employees still covered by collective agreements. Please attach the confirmation that you receive from the trade union with the cancellation form.

Fora recommend that you maintain insurance coverage even if the company operates without employees, since self-employed persons and their spouses/registered partners who are active in the business are covered by Work Injury Insurance (TFA).

How to distinguish between wage-earners and salaried employees

Toggle

The method you use to find out whether an employee counts as a wage-earner or a salaried employee will depend on whether your company has a collective agreement or not.

Companies with collective agreements

It is usually the collective agreement that determines whether an employee counts as a wage-earner or a salaried employee.

  • Wage-earners are covered by collective agreements between an employers’ association and a trade union belonging to the Swedish Trade Union Confederation (LO).
  • Salaried employees are covered by collective agreements between an employers’ association and a trade union belonging to the Swedish Council for Negotiation and Co-operation (PTK).
  • It is the work that an employee performs that determines to which collective agreement they belong.

If you are uncertain how an employee should be classified, you can contact the trade union with which you have a collective agreement.

Companies without collective agreements

At companies without collective agreements, the work that employees perform determines if they count as wage-earners or salaried employees. If it is difficult to make an assessment, Statistics Sweden (SCB) has an Occupational Register, the duties involved in each profession, and whether the individual with that occupation/those duties should be classified as a wage-earner or a salaried employee.

1. Find the profession’s SEI code

Toggle

Find the profession’s SEI code in the list of occupational titles (yrkesförteckning).

If you don't know the title, you can search for it in the Swedish Standard Classification of Occupations (Svensk Yrkesklassificering).

2. Wage-earner or salaried employee?

Toggle

Finally, check the Socioeconomic Classification Socioekonomisk indelning) to see if the SEI code means that the employee is classified as a wage-earner or a salaried employee.

When you count as a business owner

Toggle

Limited company

Toggle

It is the percentage of company stock you own that determines whether you are regarded as a business owner. If other family members own company stock, you should include their shares when calculating your ownership stake.

Rules for calculating your ownership stake:

Your shares (at least one) 
+ shares owned by your husband/wife/registered partner
+ shares owned by your children 
+ shares owned by your parents 
= your ownership stake

If your ownership stake is at least 33.33 per cent, you are considered to be a business owner.

You should not include your cohabitant’s or your sibling’s shares when you calculate your ownership stake.

Family members can also be business owners

If you count as a business owner, your family members may also count as business owners. 

Children and parents

If you are a business owner and have children or parents who own at least one share and are active in the company, they also count as business owners.

Husband/wife/registered partner

If you are a business owner and have a husband/wife/registered partner who is active in the company, they will also count as a business owner, even if they own no shares.

Cohabitant

If you are a business owner and have a cohabitant who owns more than 33.33 per cent of the company stock and is active in the company, they will also count as a business owner.

Rules for calculating your cohabitant’s ownership stake:

Cohabitant’s shares 
+ shares owned by your cohabitant’s children 
+ shares owned by your cohabitant’s parents
= cohabitant’s ownership stake

Your cohabitant should not add their shares to your shares to calculate their ownership stake.
