|Description||The Legal, Financial and Administrative Services Agency is the oldest public authority in Sweden. It dates back to 1539 when Gustav Vasa established a "chamber" to deal with tax collection and the auditing of public accounts. Today the Agency is a modern organisation which not only exercises public authority but also operates commercial undertakings. Its tasks cover an extensive area and mainly involve activities that require qualified legal and economic expertise. The public authority exercised by the Agency applies for instance to the authorisation of interpreters and translators, travel guarantees, exemptions from the testamentary provisions governing foundations, the appointment of those entitled to solemnize marriages, registration of religious denominations and also looking after the Swedish Inheritance Fund's interest and other areas of public interest. The Agency represents the state in certain cases brought before courts of law and is also responsible for collection of debts handed over by other government authorities.|
