How to get a coordination number
This information is for EU/EEA citizens only
The coordination number is necessary to pay tax in Sweden. You apply by completing form SKV 4350. To obtain the coordination number, you must show your passport and an employment contract.
If your employer asks for a Swedish coordination number to be able to draft an employment contract, you must explain that you need the employment contract in order to obtain a co-ordination number.
Your employer must therefore sign a temporary contract without a co-ordination number, which you can take to the Swedish Tax Agency. Once the Swedish Tax Agency has given you a co-ordination number, your employer can issue the final contract stating the co-ordination number.
