Do you have a non-Swedish business with employees in Sweden?

Employee tax, social security, and employer reporting obligations for foreign businesses in Sweden

Sweden is a prosperous country with well-performing economy, robust banking system and strong public finances, which makes Sweden one of the best countries for doing business.
