We will apply 30 percent tax on your payment. If you live in Sweden and we are the the main payer of your pensions you can increase the amount of tax that is deducted from your pension. If you wish to have a tax rate that is lower than 30% deduction you need to contact the Swedish Tax Agency.

The National Government Employee Pensions Board, SPV, is often not the main payer. Definition of the main payer is the one that pays out the largest amount of money. The non-main payer, meaning in most cases SPV, should apply 30 percent in tax.

This is how the tax deduction works

As the non-main payer SPV will deduct 30 percent tax. If the pension that you receive from SPV is the main payer we should deduct tax according to the local tax rate. If so you would need to send us an email or letter notify us that we are the main payer.

Your tax is dependent on your total income

If you receive pension from several different payers your tax deductions in total could be too low. To make sure that you not owe tax to the Swedish Tax Agency you can raise the tax deduction with the main payer.

If you want us to reduce the tax deduction below 30 percent

If you want us to reduce the tax deduction you would need a decision regarding reduced tax rate from the Swedish Tax Agency. If you live abroad you can also apply for Special Income Tax on non-residents.
