Your membership fee may be paid monthly via direct debit, e-invoice or by payment slip quarterly or annually.
If all the members of the Swedish Association of Graduate Engineers paid their membership fees electronically, this would make a big difference to the environment. The fact that it is also convenient for both you and us makes this a simple equation. So please choose an electronic payment option.
Membership fees are deducted the last workday every month and monthly from your bank account automatically.
For retired members and students who are not members of the Akademikernas a-kassa, annual payment is applied irrespective of method of payment.
Our bank giro number for direct debit is 630-0024.
Membership fees are invoiced quarterly for working members in January, April, July and October and once per academic year for students.
If you choose to pay by e-invoice, the bill will be presented to your Internet bank and all you need to do is approve it. All the data concerning your payment is already filled in.
How to do it:
Your e-invoice will be delivered on the same date you previously received your paper invoice covering the same period of time, the only aspect that has changed when you choose an e-invoice is method of delivery.
Members who choose to use direct debit may receive an advice slip and due date via e-invoice. The fee period is the same as previously (month or full year). Payment advice is only sent out when the amount changes.
If you change your mind later and do not want e-invoices, simply deregister at your Internet bank.
Our bank giro number for invoices is 5303-6968

From the 1st of February we will introduce a billing fee of 35 SEK on quarter invoice sent by postal service.
