The quickest and most secure way to receive refunds from your tax account is to register a bank account to which you would like the money transferred.
Your tax refunds cannot be paid into someone else’s bank account.
Your tax refunds will continue to be paid into the Swedish bank account you have registered until the account number is deregistered by you or your bank.
If you have a Swedish e-identification, you can register a bank account in one of the following ways:
If you have a five-digit clearing number, just fill in the first four digits when you register your bank account using the e-service. If you have a personal payment account (“personkonto”) with Nordea, please enter 3300 as your clearing number. If you would like to register a PlusGiro account, please enter your full account number (14 digits, starting with the clearing number 9960).
If you have not registered a bank account well before a tax refund is due, you will need to request a payment to your bank account.
If you do not have a Swedish e-identification, you can register a Swedish bank account via the Bankgirot website. If you are a business owner, you also have the option of registering a Bankgiro number instead of a bank account number.
If you would like to update the account details you have provided, please follow the same procedure as for registering a new bank account. The latest account registered will replace any details provided previously. If you no longer wish to have a bank account registered, you can deregister it. To do this, follow the same procedure as for registering a new account, but enter the bank’s clearing number followed by 12 zeros instead of your account number.
The Swedish Tax Agency cannot change or deregister a bank account unless you instruct us to do so via the e-service.
In certain cases, a tax refund can be paid into a non-Swedish bank account. The documents you must send to the Swedish Tax Agency are listed in the following sections.

If you no longer wish to have a non-Swedish bank account registered, you must notify the Swedish Tax Agency in writing.
