Gå ur Svenska Kyrkan – Lower your tax online, in 2 minutes | Product Hunt



Niche Mates make niche products.

This one is REALLY niche.

What does “Gå ur svenska kyrkan” mean?
———————————————–
It’s Swedish for “leave the swedish church”.

What’s the problem you’re solving?
———————————————–
Swedish citizens born before 1996 automatically become members of the Swedish church- religious or not.

It wouldn’t matter… if you didn’t have to pay part of your income to them! Depending on where you live, you pay between 1-2% of your salary to the Swedish church.

You’re allowed to leave, but they don’t make it easy. It’s a great business they’ve got going:
– Acquisition costs are 0 – you become a member automatically upon birth
– Most members are unaware that they are paying – it’s not talked about a lot
– Recurring revenue – a 1-2% royalty on productivity of millions of people…
– It’s hard to opt-out – why would they make it easy to stop giving them money?

The church asks you to print out a form (that’s hard to find), sign with a blue pen (wtf?) and send to the congregation you belong to (which one do I belong to??).

They make it hard. We make it easy.

Why did we build this?
———————————————–
Leaving the church is free, but it’s a lot of work to figure out how to do it. Over 20k people search every month about this, with little information to find.

There’s a few scammy sites out there that “help”. They’re often based in tax havens, charge WAY too much and don’t deliver what they promise.

We figured we could make things easy for the customer and make a small margin in the process.

► We Need YOU 🤜 💥 🤛
———————————————–

I’d love some feedback on the layout of the site. Maybe you could translate it to learn more about how it works?

Thanks for checking out Gå ur Svenska Kyrkan =)
