Salary payment

Your salary is usually paid on the 25th of every month at the earliest, and on the last day of the month at the latest. Nordea is our payment service provider. If you want to transfer your salary payments to another bank, you must send a transfer requisition to Nordea.

If you want your salary to be paid into a bank account with a bank in a country outside Sweden, you must fill in this salary payment form and send it to Nordea.

If you do not submit this form, your salary will be paid through a PlusGiro withdrawal slip from Nordea.

Tax card

When you are hired, you must immediately send your preliminary tax card to the Payroll Unit. Contact Skatteverket (the Swedish Tax Agency) if you have not received a tax card.

Income statement

Every January you will receive a specific income statement for the past year. Use the statement as a basis for your income tax return.

Reimbursement for business trips

When you go on business trips, you will be reimbursed for your travel expenses. SLU will reimburse you for your ticket or give you a car allowance. You may also be entitled to a subsistence allowance. Some of the reimbursement counts as salary and will impose taxes.

Before a business trip, vaccination may be necessary in some cases. Contact your healthcare centre or vaccination agency for information on which vaccines are needed. In order for the cost to be invoiced to the department/equivalent, contact occupational health services.
