[advise required] transferring savings from non-EU to Swedish bank - lost in lack of info online
Hello, we need your expert advice please, its about money transfer from abroad to Swedish bank account, my cousin is a new immigrant in Sweden, she got her residency in Sweden just few months back, they gave her and her family integration plan (eta ble ring) and registered in skatteverket, forsakringskassan, arbetsformedling, got their personal numbers and IDs... before coming to Sweden, she was living and working in different country (non-EU country, and not original homeland country) for over 9 years, she has bank account under her name and some life saving amount.. question is if she wants to transfer the amount to Swedish bank account, is it tax-able? given she has earned it while not in Sweden, not resident in Sweden, and she can show documents of employment, contract, and bank statements to clear and justify the source of found point.. now, If tax-able, what is the percentage? what is your advice? she don't want to keep them abroad since she is planning to settle in Sweden, maybe she can use them later to open small business or buy small apartment, and if transferable without taxes (as we guess, hopefully :) since it was gained from work outside of the EU while wasn't resident of EU that time) -- then is it going to affect her or her family's situation or the forsakringskassan benefits like barndrag, eta bler ing compinsations and job offiice services? language learning?
Can you help or point out in answering these queries please? she asked friends and old residents around in Sweden, they kept getting differenet answers and complicated feedbacks and irrelative stories.. so kept seeking for information online without lack so far.. doesn't know how to start. any advice or steps to follow in order to achieve this without taxes will be apprecaited, we all still think it doesn't make sense paying taxes to something was before being residence of the Sweden/EU.. or at least we hope so.. what you think? what is the rule for it.. amount ranges? numbers to call? link to read? if anyone can help in this we are really thankful.
Note, from reading several topics here in the forum, noticed many abbreviations, assumed SKV is skatteverket, what is HR? any idea how to know what those abbreviations stands for? its full of useful information but for new people to taxation concept can be furrestrating..
Thanks a lot in advance
