Inter-Consulting Europe (UK) Ltd will only work with candidates who would fit into a Swedish culture and will appreciate the local amenities. This includes living locally. We prefer people who want to relocate to Sweden. We require employees to be enrolled into the Swedish Social System with a Person ID and a Full TAX ID to be granted and a Verification process to be applied. This is crucial, so all laws are obeyed. In turn, we must provide legal evidences to our Project Manager and to the client. Sweden has implemented Immigration and TAX Laws for both non-EU and EU nationals.
EU Nationals/British Nationals/US Nationals
EU Nationals are subject to Swedish Taxation if you are in the country for more than 3 months. If you are commuting on a weekly basis and work over 3 months you are a subject to Swedish taxation, as this is deemed as your main income and place of work. Sweden does not recognise 183 days’ rule anymore. Any British Nationals need to have Swedish AB on commencement of any contracts. The payments are only made in Sweden, not to any UK Ltd company. This is the only business process we operate for British contractors.
This Swedish government body investigates contractors, who do not obey Swedish Tax rules: www.ekobrottsmyndigheten.se/en/
Taxation System in Sweden
If you are an employee paid from Inter-Consulting Europe (UK) Ltd you are obliged to pay all social tax fees: national insurance, pension, and other fees for yourself.
You will have to sign the Agreement SKV 4738 “Socialavgiftsavtal” (Social security contribution agreement) and send it to the Statteverket, a Swedish Tax Office. Please, download the Agreement Form.
Agreement SKV 4738 “Socialavgiftsavtal” an agreement between employer and employee, that the employee has got paid out even the social contribution (e.g. 21.77% for 2016) on top of the gross salary. This has to be paid then to the Swedish Skatteverket by the employee. Additional information is on the link.
You will also receive a letter from Inter-Consulting Automotive Ltd, where you must agree that you agreed to pay social contribution described above. If you don't pay your social contribution, we will hold your salary payments until it is done. We will ask you for the evidence that the contribution payments are up to date on a monthly basis, as we have to show this proof to the customer.
According to Swedish supply chain law the end customer is responsible for social contribution payments of its employees. If an employee avoids paying taxes Swedish tax authorities will demand this amount from the end customer. Therefore, the customer requires from us to provide evidences of your payments.
Work in Sweden as a non-EU citizen
Work Permit for Brazilian/Mexican Nationals
Single status people take a priority and can process a work permit for them in 6 weeks. However, this is subject to all conditions to be met.
If we find an applicant who is suitable and is married, we may process with an offer of a 12-month contract if all conditions are met. One of the conditions is that the wife must stay in a home country for at least 12 months, as it takes time for a new person to establish himself in a new country and gives the candidate and the client to see if both parties can work together. The contract then can be extended to 2-4 years and the wife can move to Sweden. We will give bonuses on the extentions. This is a good process, as if all legal terms and payroll conditions are correct Swedish authorities can grant you a Swedish EU passport in the 5th year (subject to terms, interviews and conditions).
