Arrived to Sweden after 31 May 2020?

Proposed extended period of validity

The Swedish Government has proposed to extend the validity of decisions granting tax relief from three to five years. According to the proposal, the amendment concerns employees arriving to Sweden after 31 May 2020.

If you have come here after that date but were notified of the decision granting you tax relief before 1 January 2021, the decision is not automatically valid for the new and longer period. If the proposal becomes reality, you or the employer will have to submit a specific application for an extension of the original three-year period of validity.

Your application must be submitted by 31 March 2021 at the latest. Once parliamentary approval has been given we will publish further guidance on how to apply.

Please note

The deadline for an application for tax relief itself remains unchanged. This application must still reach us no later than three months after you started working in Sweden.
