Hej!

So this will be my first time selling artwork outside of the UK. I know that Sweden uses Krona, so is that what it would be best to charge in? Also do you know if it would be taxable? I am confused D:

Or would it be better if I had maybe a sign on my table stating I accept GBP£, EUR€ and Swedish krona, and have all three prices?

For examples:

£10.00/13€/107 swedish krona (how should I write it?)

I can't say what to do and not to do regarding tax since i am running the convention. If i were selling personally i would maybe not tell anyone about it.

Regarding the prices.
Currency in Sweden is Swedish Krona (SEK). It's up to you if you wan't to allow people to pay with Euros or Pounds. Most people will have some Swedish money since Sweden does not accept Euros or Pounds except at airports and such.

The correct text on the sign, if you want to be fancy and use Swedish ^^, would be:
1kr or 1 krona or 1 SEK (about 0.11EUR, http://www.xe.com/ucc/co...amp;From=SEK&To=EUR)
2...100000000kr or 2...100000000 kronor or 2...100000000 SEK

Norwegians also use the term krona in Norway. Their currency code is NOK.

As far as I know it is ok to sell in other countries in the EU as I am a EU citizen but I need to double check that. And it is going to be soooo confusing for me with SEK but hopefully I will be there a few days before so I can get some practice P:

Thanks!!

Although the exchange rate varies, for simple maths I usually just go by a factor of ten. So £1 = 10 Sek or Skr.

For the latest rates I tend to use www.xe.com/ucc

As it's income within the EU it would be declarable on self return forms, although the amount is so small usually when compared to income of a person at a con. Also, it's worth noting that the cost of travelling to the con and attending will often balance out any profit made.

By self return forms do you mean tax return? I already record that and am registered with HMRC as self employed.

And thanks so much WolfKendo :D

Actually, it's krone in Norway! En krone, kronen, flere kroner, alle kronene. I believe it's roughly the same in Denmark.

I've been to Sweden a few times, and their money still confuses me.

Since yorue from EU I think you would stay clear of swedish taxes, and import fees, but its safer to check with customs (Tullverket) or Skatteverket (for taxes.) if they want to take in VAT or import/export fees. But my guess would be that youre free to sell youre art as long as it isnt on a huge scale.

I would state youre rates in SEK/EUR and maybe GBP since thats whats most people would have, or can relate to. Id guess it would make it easier for you to use the rate 1 SEK= 10EUR= 13GBP for simplicity.

Would be nice if it would be that way ;-)

right now (rounded): 1 SEK = 0,12 EUR = 0,09 GBP

Oups, swapped the numbers around a bit. 10 SEK is roughly 1 EUR.
