Like many countries, Sweden wants to widen and defend its domestic tax base. One of the focus areas is non-resident travel, where the failure to comply with proposed new reporting and tax payment requirements will result in surcharges, interest and other penalties.
The Swedish Ministry of Finance submitted a proposal for consultation in June 2017. This put forward changes to the taxation of individuals working temporarily in Sweden, together with broadening the categories of employees who pay Swedish tax. The changes will also bring significant administrative costs.
Sweden’s new rules are set to apply from 1 January 2019. So your organization needs to be on top of these developments and to update its compliance procedures.
As well as complying with these new rules, employers will continue to be legally responsible for meeting mandatory requirements in areas such as individual income tax, payroll reporting and income tax withholding, as well as social security payments, corporate tax obligations associated with permanent establishments, and maintaining the proper immigration/work permit documentation.
