Access to EKN Online

When a company wishes to open an EKN Online Company Account they send an application to EKN who approve this and create a Company Account. In order to do this you login to EKN Online with an eID. You enter the company details and submit an application as well as an Online Services agreement

The Online Services Agreement comprises:

  • Online Services Agreement for EKN Online
  • General Terms and Conditions for EKN Online
  • Power(s) of Attorney for EKN Online

The Online Services Agreement and Power(s) of Attorney need to be signed by an authorised signatory and sent to EKN by post.

EKN will verify the signature against a Swedish registration document and any relevant Power of Attorney. If the company is not Swedish we need a Legal Opinion supporting the signatory’s right to enter the Agreement (see Draft Checklist Legal Opinion). This Legal Opinion can be obtained either from external legal counsel or from your inhouse counsel if signed by your General Counsel, Company Secretary or such.

Access to Company Account

In connection with entering the Online Services Agreement the Account holder issues power(s) of attorney to one or more Users in order to give them Account Administrator Authorisation. The Administrator can thereafter, on behalf of the Account Holder, issue Business Account Authorisation to one or more Users. However, the Administrator is not able to appoint other Administrators. A User connected to several Company Accounts needs a Power of Attorney for each Company Account.

How do I access an existing Company Account?

If you wish to connect to an existing Company Account you login to EKN Online and create a user. You can then request to be connected to an existing Company Account by stating the Account Number (please check with your Administrator). The Administrator is then able to approve your connection to the Company Account and will digitally sign your Power of Attorney.

How do I become Administrator for an existing Company Account?

If you for any reason need to become Account Administrator for an existing Company Account you print an Account Administrator Authorisation Power of Attorney. This needs to be signed by an authorised signatory and sent to EKN by post. (see rules above)
How do I revoke user access to our existing Company Account?
An Account Administrator can revoke access for a User from a Company Account in EKN Online. The User can also remove himself from an account.
