Sweden has an official UBO registry, but it is not publicly accessible. Strise access the data through Valu8.

The reporting requirements are less strict compared to Norway or Denmark. This may result in companies without any ownership visible in Strise.

Swedish law defines a beneficial owners as a natural person who ultimately owns or controls a company or association. A beneficial owner can also be a person or persons who benefit from someone else acting on their behalf. This covers people who:

  • has more than 25 percent of the votes through shares, shares or membership

  • has the right to appoint or remove more than half of the board members or equivalent executives.


Certain organisation types are exempt from reporting on beneficial ownership.

  • Joint-stock companies whose shares are admitted to trading on a regulated market and their subsidiaries

  • Estates and bankruptcy estates

  • Sole proprietorship

  • Non-profit associations

  • The state, county councils and municipalities as well as legal entities where the public sector has a controlling influence
