Information about payment with credit card

For your safety, our payment system is connected to the 3D Secure system for ensuring the security of payments made through the internet. Your card needs to be connected to Verified by Visa or Mastercard SecureCode. Your bank can inform you if your card is connected, and if not already, how it can be connected.

If you receive an error message when paying with your card, please check with your bank to see if they have a block on overseas payments, a block on internet payments, and/or a limit on the amount that can be charged in one day. These are common reasons why a payment initially does not go through.


VAT 25%

According to Swedish and EU legislation, 25% VAT will be added to all registration fees, except for participants outside of Sweden who participate digitally.

Exception: Swedish participants from government public sector organisations (“statliga

myndigheter” (e.g., universities, governmental agencies): No VAT will be added. In this case, you must choose Invoice (Swedish billing address only) as the payment mode and provide your VAT number.


VAT regulation for participants at digital or hybrid conferences

Swedish private persons – VAT

Companies outside of Sweden – No VAT

Private persons living outside of Sweden – No VAT


The Swedish and EU legislation states regarding digital conferences that VAT is paid in the country where the service is consumed i.e. in the buyer’s country. Therefore, no VAT for participants who participate from a country outside of Sweden.
