Establishment guide

Intro: There is no specific comprehensive franchise legislation in Sweden. The only direct franchiserelated legislation is a disclosure obligation for the franchisor (Law 2006:484). Under Swedish disclosure rules, a franchisor must provide a prospective franchisee with certain information before a franchise contract is entered into. The legislation covers all franchise contracts in Sweden: domestic and foreign contracts; master franchise contracts and unit contracts; new contracts; and renewals of old contracts.
