The Administrative Court of Appeal gives FinnvedenBulten right in tax ruling

April 16 2013

The Administrative Court of Appeal in Stockholm has in a ruling dated April 11, 2013 repealed the Swedish tax authority Skatteverket's ("Skatteverket") review decision of FinnvedenBulten AB (publ) ("FinnvedenBulten") tax loss carryforwards and grants that FinnvedenBulten is entitled to reimbursement for costs associated with the process.

Skatteverket has previously, through review decision, declined FinnvedenBulten tax loss carryforwards by partially disallowed the deduction of interest on shareholder loans. FinnvedenBulten has maintained its former position with the support of leading tax experts and appealed to the The Administrative Court of Appeal. As The Administrative Court of Appeal in its ruling April 11, 2013 has approved FinnvedenBulten's position, carryforwards by approximately SEK 197 million will be allowed and reimbursement of costs associated with the process of SEK 300,000. The ruling is expected to gain legal force in June 2013.
