The rules applicable in Sweden on the application fee for a European order for payment consist of:
- Act (2008:879) on a European order for payment (Lag (2008:879) om europeiskt betalningsföreläggande) 5 § An applicant for a European order for payment must pay an application fee. The Government may issue regulations on the amount of the fee.
The application fee must be paid in advance.
If the applicant fails to comply with an order to pay the application fee, the application will be rejected.
- Regulation (2008:892) on a European order for payment (Förordning (2008:892) om europeiskt betalningsföreläggande) 3 § When paying the application fee, the applicant must indicate the respondent’s personal identity number or organisation registration number.
What fees apply?
If you are applying for a European order for payment in Sweden, you must pay an application fee. The application fee must be paid in advance. That means that the application fee must have been paid in order for the Swedish Enforcement Authority (Kronofogdemyndigheten) to commence the processing of the application for a European order for payment. When you have submitted the application, you will receive an order from the Swedish Enforcement Authority containing information on how to pay the application fee.
How much must I pay?
At present, you must pay an application fee of SEK 300.
What happens if I fail to pay the court fees in time?
If the application fee is not paid on time, the application will be rejected before the processing of the application has begun.
How can I pay the court fees?
Do not pay the application fee in advance. Wait instead until you have received a letter from the Swedish Enforcement Authority giving all the details of how you should pay.
What must I do after payment?
You do not need to do anything after you have paid the application fee on time. The Swedish Enforcement Authority monitors receipt of the payment by the authority. Once the payment has been entered in the books, the Swedish Enforcement Authority begins processing your application for a European order for payment.
