Frequently asked questions

I’ve lost my login details – what should I do?

E-mail or call us and specify which survey it concerns; don’t forget to state either the V-number or the corporate ID number.

How should I report my values?

State the values in SEK thousands. For example, if you are reporting an investment of SEK 100 000, then write 100 SEK thousands. Do not use minus signs or commas when entering the amounts.

Our enterprise has gone bankrupt or merged with another company – what should I do?

Submit data for the quarters in which the enterprise was still active and enter 0 for the remaining quarters if the enterprise has gone bankrupt. Include a comment about this at the end before submitting the data. The same applies for a merger – submit data for the quarters before the merger and enter 0 for the remainder of the year. If you have information about the new enterprise, please include this at the end before submitting the data.

The wrong contact person is listed in the letter – how do I change this?

When you log in to submit your information, you must first confirm that the contact details are correct. Please correct any inaccurate contact details.

The address is wrong – how do I change this?

Log in and change the address information before proceeding to the form.

I submitted incorrect information – how do I rectify this? Can I submit a new form?

Forms for the current year always remain open for adjustment so you can log in at any time, make corrections and submit the new information.

Can I be reimbursed for submitting information about my enterprise?

No. Submitting information is a legal obligation for enterprises and organisations, which is why there is no remuneration. Neither Statistics Sweden nor any other government agency has been granted funds for remunerating enterprises for submitting information for the official statistics.

Where to find the final statistics

The results of the survey will be published as statistical news on Statistics Sweden’s web page for business activities after each survey.
