Fees and payment

When you file a national patent application with us, you have to pay a filing fee. Later in the process, you have to pay a granting fee and then annual fees.

You also pay us the fees required to validate a European patent in Sweden, as well as the relevant fees for an international patent application.

Payment options

You pay through our e-service for electronic payment, by bank transfer or through our deposit account. We can not offer invoice.

E-service for electronic payment

We offer card payments (Visa, MasterCard and Eurocard) and via Internet banking (Nordea, Swedbank and SEB companies).
Electronic payment

Bankgiro

Our Bankgiro number is 5050-0248.

If you have an application number or a publication number, you should quote that on payment. If not, you should state the title of the invention, your name and what type of payment it concerns. You will receive a filing receipt that shows your application has been registered. Your case number (application number) is on the filing receipt, which you can give as a reference when paying.

Remember that we do not examine applications which have not been paid for.

Payments from abroad

BIC: ESSESESS
Stockholm IBAN: SE22 5000 0000 0543 9100 1349 (24 digits)

To avoid surcharges, you must give the correct payment instructions for international payments. The recipient's (PRV's) bank must be given as a Bank Identifier Code (BIC – formerly SWIFT). Our account number must be given as an International Bank Account Number (IBAN). If you use both the BIC and the IBAN, it should guarantee a correct transfer to our bank.
