Deposit money you owe to someone

You may deposit money if you, for example, owe someone money that refuses to accept the money, or if you cannot determine who should get the money. Apply for a deposit with the County Administrative Board.

If you owe a person money you may, in some cases, deposit the money (sätta ned) with the County Administrative Board. Your debt is then considered to be paid on time.

What are the requirements for making a deposit?

To deposit money you owe to someone, one of the following requirements must be met:

  • The person to whom you owe money refuses to accept the payment.
  • You cannot pay because you cannot find the person to whom you owe money, or that person is sick, or other reasons that can be attributed to the person to whom you owe money.
  • You do not know who you owe money to.
  • Two or more persons demand money from you and you cannot determine who should get the money.

Therefore, the reason you cannot pay your debt must be due to the recipient. You cannot make a deposit if you, for example, have a disagreement with a craftsmen on how much to pay for a particular service or for purchasing the wrong product.

You can only deposit money if it is passed the debt’s due date.

How do I make a deposit?

A deposit application consists of two parts. You send an application to the County Administrative Board and pay the amount you want to deposit. We cannot process the deposit application if one of these parts is missing.

  • Apply for a deposit

To make a deposit of money you owe to someone, complete an application and send it to the County Administrative Board.

  • Pay the amount you want to deposit

Pay the amount you want to deposit to the County Administrative Board. You decide how much to deposit.

At the first payment – please provide your corporate number, or social security number, and your name in the payment notification box (for example, “012345-6789, Company Ltd., Your Name”).

Notify the person, or persons, to whom you owe money

Every time you deposit money, you must notify the person, or persons, to whom you owe money. If you fail to notify them, you may be required to compensate for any losses they might have suffered due to your failure of notification.

Reimbursement

The reimbursement application must be in the original and it must be signed by the person who wants the money.
