Hi everybody!

This is slightly OT, but I hope somebody can help anyhow:
I have the possibility to move to sweden by the end of the year, but I heard the taxes are outrageous. Is there any "Online tax calculator" available for independents? Many countries offer this and are pretty accurate. What are your experiences? Any recommendations?

Thanks everybody :-)

Where's Lagereek when you actually need him?

There's a calculator at Verksamt.se (a site created by the authorities about starting/running a company). They have an english version of their site but I didn't find the calculator in english.

But here it is in swedish: http://www.verksamt.se/portal/web/guest/starta/anvandbara-verktyg/rakna-ut/rakneverktyg?p_p_id=tvv_webcalc_WAR_tvv_webcalc&p_p_lifecycle=1&p_p_state=normal&p_p_mode=view&_tvv_webcalc_WAR_tvv_webcalc_calcNav=1

The taxes differs depending on your age and how much money you make. I'm 33 and made a profit of about 370000 crowns last year and paid about 160000 in taxes, so about 43% for me.

Guess I could translate the most important parts of the calculator. You can skip most of the fields if you just sum up the profit yourself. Under "Fretagsform" (type of business entity) choose "Enskild firma". Select your age group under "Ange din lder". Enter your yearly profit in "Frsljning och utfrt arbete". Tick the checkbox "Jag ska inte ha ngra anstllda" (I will not have any employees). That's it. The total sum you'll have to pay in taxes is at the bottom of the page next to "Summa".

If you work more than 800 hours from home every year you can deduct 4000 crowns a year (not much but it's something).

Thanks you so much! The Chrome translation Toolbar did a good Job so I was able to understand everything :-)
Not exactly a tax heaven, but good times can`t last forever I guess...

Can one come along well with english or do you have to speak swedish? I see that our income figures are roughly the same, is this income sufficent for living there?

Well, it depends on what kind of life you're planning to live here I guess, hehe. You won't be able to buy a central apartment in the largest cities and drive a Ferrari but getting 17500 crowns a month when the taxes are paid are not too bad. Most workers (no higher education) probably make a couple of thousand crowns less and the average academics probably make a few thousand more.

And most swedes speak english well so it shouldn't be a problem making yourself understood. Could be trouble finding a job though, but I guess that's not your plan anyway.
