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 purpose of the newly published The Legal 500 - Tax Disputes Comparative Guide is to provide a pragmatic overview regarding tax disputes in a host of different jurisdictions. With her specialist expertise of the civil procedure rules governing litigation in the administrative courts, in combination with her considerable experience of working at public authorities, Ulrika Bengtsson is the driving force behind Vinge’s tax litigation practice.
”Of course I am delighted to have been asked by The Legal 500, and in the chapter I answer a host of questions, for example what rules govern a foreign company with operations in Sweden and which areas will probably become subject to challenges and disputes in the future”,
Ulrika Bengtsson states, who advises Vinge’s multinational clients regarding extensive and complex tax disputes, primarily regarding Swedish and international corporate taxation.
The guide provides an important map to avoid getting on the wrong side of tax procedures and also provides an introduction to a different jurisdiction’s regulatory system. It highlights current issues such as, for example, what happens if one finds oneself in a dispute with a tax authority, whether a settlement is possible, the appeals procedure as well as sanctions. In addition, insights and views are provided in relation to the most common and most prevalent issues in different countries.
