NC Advisory AB wins final judgement over Tax Agency – Supreme Administrative Court denies leave to appeal

November 05 2014

Information regarding tax case:

The Swedish Supreme Administrative Court has denied the Swedish Tax Agency's leave to appeal. This confirms the previous clear ruling from the Administrative Court of Appeal in December 2013 that the company has paid tax in accordance with applicable law.

"The ruling by the Administrative Court of Appeal is clear, and we are pleased that we are now able to conclude these legal proceedings." says Joakim Karlsson, Managing Partner, NC Advisory AB, advisor to the Nordic Capital Funds.

"It is positive for Sweden that we now have a legal ruling in place that encourages private equity funds, their advisors as well as international investors to invest in Sweden. Sweden as a country has thereby demonstrated awareness of the private equity industry's value for building a stronger, more enterprising Sweden," adds Kristoffer Melinder, also Managing Partner at NC Advisory AB, advisor to the Nordic Capital Funds.

The court ruling at issue concerns fiscal years 2007-08.
