Do you live in Sweden and work on board a ship that is registered in another Nordic country and operated in international traffic?

This applies to you who live in Sweden and work on board a ship that is registered in another Nordic country and operated in international traffic. The information applies only to taxation of such income.

International traffic

In this context, international traffic means transport by ship, except when the ship is operated solely between places in one Nordic country.

Taxation in another Nordic country

Your pay can be taxed in the Nordic country in which the ship is registered.

When you work on board a ship that is chartered on a so-called bareboat basis by a shipping company in another Nordic country, you may be taxed in the country where the shipping company is resident.

Taxation in Sweden

Income earned on a foreign ship is not liable to tax in Sweden and does not influence the taxation of other incomes you have.

You can find information about taxation of income earned on board a ship operating on the Norwegian or Danish continental shelf under the heading  "Do you live in Sweden and work on the Danish or Norwegian continental shelf?".

National Insurance

There are special rules about where you are to be insured. For more information you should contact Försäkringskassan the social security authorities in the country where the ship is registered.
