Vinge advises Fortum in connection with sale of Arvika Fjärrvärme

July 08, 2010

Vinge has advised Fortum in connection with the sale of its holding in Arvika Fjärrvärme AB to Arvika Stadshus AB whereupon Arvika has become the company’s sole shareholder. Final completion and take-over in respect of the operations is expected to take place on 1 October 2010.

Arvika Fjärrvärme was established in 1996 by Fortum Värme and Arvika Stadhus AB. Since then distance heating has developed into a much more energy efficient and environmentally friendly business operation. Almost 90 % of the initial fuel requirement is provided in the form of biofuel from the Lyckeverket facility where most of the heating production takes place.

Vinge’s team consisted of partner Johan Göthberg and associate Johan Norström.

Vinge authors the Swedish contribution regarding tax disputes for The Legal 500

International companies run the risk of the erroneous management of tax issues when conducting operations in several jurisdictions. In such event, disputes can arise with the relevant tax authorities. The Legal 500 has now introduced a dedicated chapter on tax disputes in its comparative guide for the first time and Ulrika Bengtsson, advokat and counsel, has been selected to provide a clear picture of the Swedish tax litigation system.

The wide reach of the prohibition against circumventing EU sanctions

Against the background of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the EU has imposed a number of sanctions, which include a prohibition for companies within the EU to take certain measures in relation to Russia, as well as designated Russian people and entities on the sanction lists. Furthermore, a prohibition to circumvent the sanctions has been introduced in order to ensure that the sanctions are effective also in practice. When it comes to this circumvention prohibition, it is important to be aware of its wide interpretation, as established by the Court of Justice of the European Union and the European Commission.
