New tax obligations in Sweden
Sweden has from January 1, 2021 implemented an economic employer tax concept and imposed tax reporting obligations for foreign entities performing services in Sweden. As a method of the enforcing the new legislation the Swedish tax agency has added obligations for Swedish entities as well when paying invoices to foreign suppliers for work performed in Sweden by the foreign supplier. A Swedish payer will due to this in some cases be obliged to withhold preliminary taxes and remit those to the tax agency unless the foreign entity has correct papers from the Swedish tax agency. For more information about the new legislation, please visit Reporting obligations in Sweden.
