Taxation in Sweden
There is a full tax obligation for companies-residents of Sweden that all income of the enterprise is subject to. Under the standard scheme, the amount of income tax is 28%. An enterprise may be also given a postponement in case of taxation of unused resources. Then the rate will drop to 26%. What part of the profit is subject to taxation? This is defined as follows: the amount of production costs is subtracted from the balance profit, as well as those funds that will go to the sale of products and payment of taxes. Such obligations apply to all enterprises, except those that prepare entertainment activities.
