Apply for tax registration if you employ a person with temporary protection
Those who have received a decision on a residence permit with temporary protection under the Temporary Protection Directive have the right to work in Sweden, but to be able to work, they must also be registered for taxation.
In order to be registered for taxation, the employee or employer must send a registration of preliminary A-tax (employment tax) to the Swedish Tax Agency. The employee may start working even before the Swedish Tax Agency has made a decision on a preliminary A-tax.
Once the Swedish Tax Agency has made a decision on a preliminary A-tax, the employee receives a coordination number if he or she does not already have one. Please note that you can get a coordination number without being registered for taxation. This means that it is not enough for the person you want to employ to have a coordination number. You must also check that he or she is registered for taxation with the Swedish Tax Agency.
