I run a arborist company in south part of Sweden and i pay "my" arborists 3000:- sek for a full day. Self employed and with their own gear. I get like 85% of the work im bidding on.


Are they Swedish or English arborist? Paying tax in Sweden or England and is that with or without moms / VAT???

Yes, the old saying "you don't know till you try it" springs to mind, if you don't have a go you will never now. Take care bud.

I'm going to Sweden for less than year in 17days and I am curious about how my taxes are going to play out since I'm an American. I figured as long as I file as self employed here in the states and pay my %15 to Uncle Sam then I should be good. Just wondering if there are any swedish taxes I have to worry about after receiving direct deposits into my account. If anyone knows of an American working in the EU for under a year, could you tell me what they had to worry about financially/legally? I've spoken to a couple of climbers here and they told me they were paid via wire transfer and paid taxes back home.


Awesome thread, keep it going.

I find it strange that a European citizen, working in another euro country, is only allowed to work upto 6months a year before having to pay tax in the country he's working rather than home country, yet an American is allowed to do it for upto a year?? Kinda goes against the idea of the European trading ideas


Email Skatteverket, the swedish tax office, tell them EVERYTHING and believe ONLY what they say :thumbup1:
