Arrived to Sweden after 31 March 2023?

Extended period of validity after amendment of law

The Swedish Parliament has decided to extend the validity of decisions granting tax relief from five to seven years. The amendment came into force as from 1 January2024. It concerns employees arriving to Sweden after 31 March 2023.

If you have come here after that date but were notified of the decision granting tax relief before 1 January 2024, the decision is not automatically valid for the new and longer period. You or your employer will have to submit a specific application for an extension of the original five-year period of validity.

Your application must be submitted by 31 March 2024 at the latest.
