3rd pillar pension

Why are savings important for employees?

Human resources are the key to success in business in any circumstances. Savings are one of the most important benefits that an employer can offer for additional financial security of employees.

Savings in a private pension fund in favour of employees:

  • Boost long-term motivation of employees and increase loyalty to the employer.
  • Allow taking advantage of tax relief.
  • Improve the company’s prestige and competitiveness on the labour market.

It has proved true historically that in case of comparatively long accrual periods (over 10 years), choosing pension plans with higher equity investment proportions offers best value as they have been able to produce better yield indicators. It has proved true historically that in case of comparatively shorter accrual periods (less than 10 years), choosing pension plans with lower proportion of investments in equities offers a better performance as they are less exposed to fluctuations on equity markets.

Tax relief

Employer's pension deposits in private pension funds are not being taxed as long as they do not exceed 10% of employee's gross wage.

Motivated employees

Pension contributions in private pension funds allow for improving your corporate motivation system for employees, which increases competitiveness of the enterprise.

Making contributions

The easiest way for an employer to make contributions into a pension fund for their employees is to use the Business Internet Banking site’s section "Payments, accounts" / "Payments" / "Import of payments".

To use the payment import functionality, you need to prepare an XML file in ISO format.

  • The company can import payments from the company's accounting software by generating an xml file in ISO format.
  • If the company does not have the possibility to use the payment import from the company's accounting software or to use it in ISO format, it can use our Excel file template with a built-in function to convert it to the required xml file in ISO format.

The instruction for payment import to Internet Banking is available here and a description of payment import from accounting systems is available here.

With payment import, it is possible to import contributions to different pension plans and for several employees at the same time with a single file. You can import payments at any time on a 24/7 basis.

Alternatively, the employer can make the contributions by a regular transfer, specifying in the payment details the forename, surname, individual pension account and identity number of the employee for whom the contribution in the pension fund is made. This is a convenient option in case of contributions for only a couple of employees.

The amount and frequency of contributions to the pension fund is up to the company.

Contributions will be credited to the participants’ individual pension accounts on the next business day after the day when the funds have been credited to the account opened for the retirement plan.

Participants’ access to capital

The pension fund participants are entitled to receive the accrued supplementary pension capital at the age of 55. However, one can also choose to start receiving the accrued capital later, at the end of active working life, e.g. at the age of 60 - 65. The capital can be received:

  • in parts over a longer period of time, e.g. a set monthly amount (the portion of capital left in the pension fund will continue to generate investment income);
  • all at once in a single payment.

After starting to take out the supplementary pension capital, contributions still can be continued. To receive the accrued supplementary pension capital, the employee must fill out an application on the Internet Banking site or go to any Swedbank branch. The supplementary pension capital will be paid out within 10 working days. The supplementary pension capital is heritable.

If contributions into the pension fund were made by the employer, then, upon receipt of the accrued supplementary pension capital, the personal income tax is payable, whereas capital gains is payable on the investment profit.
