23 October - Learn about the Swedish tax system

The taxes paid in Sweden cover a number of services and benefits that are unique to living in Sweden. Besides funding infrastructure, social security benfits, education, health care to name a few; there exists support for the sick and disabled, pensions, care for the elderly, unemployment and businesses.

You have most likely visited the Swedish Tax Agency when you arrived to Sweden but probably are not aware of the other services this authority provides. 

The Swedish Tax Agency manages civil registration of private individuals and collect taxes such as personal income tax, corporate tax, VAT and excise tax. They also provide other services such as executing Swedish Identity cards as well as registering new businesses.

We will have a tax information officer here to talk about these services and answer questions but keep in mind that he may not be able to get into details. 

 

During our events we sometimes take photographs and short film clips to profile our activities. Please let us know if you don’t want to be in any photos/films before we start the event. Thank you!
