The Swedish tax authority has no sole and is ready to help vulnerable companies with a quick burial even if they have not finally died. According to the Swedish Tax Authority, Saab automobile, which is struggling to build up financial resources, is wasting time in paying its taxes and various contributions. The department does not like it.

When a company delays in paying any of these contributions or taxes, that company may pay an astronomical high interest of the amount owed.


Over Skr34 million is what was expected from Saab as taxed on Tuesday, but there was a deficit. On Wednesday afternoon the money come in, according to the Tax authority. But the money was not there on time and this is not a good thing to a sole less institution like the tax authority.

"It takes three to five days before the transfer can be seen with us. It may well be that they have paid, but we can not see the money, "says Lene Johansson, section chief dealing with large corporations in the Swedish tax office in Gothenburg.

Last month also, Saab was a few days late with their tax payment, when the money arrived on June 17, with maturity on June 13, "then the companies pay interest which is the high default rate of 17 percent,” says Lene Johansson.
