The Sweden-Austria tax treaty scandal.
by Peter Sundgren
At a meeting in February 2007 arranged by the Swedish IFA branch and hosted by Deloitte, Stockholm, representatives from the international office of the Swedish Finance Department, Mrs. Ingela Willfors and Mr. Claes Hammarstedt, had been invited to give information about the present situation regarding Sweden’s tax treaty network and other related international tax matters.
When the discussion turned to the Sweden-Austria treaty and the recent developments thereof I probably spoiled the agreeable atmosphere of the meeting by venting my serious grievances regarding the Finance Department’s deplorable mismanagement of this treaty.
