Apply to register an idea-based organisation

Below you can read more about how to apply, what information you must submit and how to pay the application fee.

Apply with electronic ID

If you have a valid electronic ID, you can log in and sign the application in our e-service. If you do not have an electronic ID, you can apply with a form. You can find the form on this page under the heading Apply with a form.

Pay the application fee

The application fee is 12 000 SEK and has to be paid to Kammarkollegiet’s bankgiro when applying. Payment instructions will be provided in the confirmation email that you will receive when applying through our e-service. If you rather use our application form when applying, separate payment instructions can be found in the form. Kammarkollegiet can only begin processing the application once the application fee has been received.
