Sverige kan få finansskatt i 2018

An expert committee appointed by the Swedish Government has recommended to impose a payroll tax on the financial industry as of 1 January 2018. The main task of the committee has been to find alternatives that will reduce the tax advantage of operations not being subject to value added tax (VAT) in Sweden.

The committee report was delivered to the Swedish Government on 7 November 2016; numbered SOU 2016:76. Consultation deadline is 15 January 2017.
