Well I am returning to the UK tomorrow and have just put my Swedish application form to become a resident but in all honesty I am SO confused. As I am still legally under contract by my UK employer I am a bit clueless as to what I need to do in order to stay in this country.
It seems that The UK and Sweden are great at giving out conflicting advice and I feel like a tennis ball being hit between two players. The UK says that if I return to the UK every three weeks then I can stay in Sweden without needing a residency permit and also I will not have to revert to paying Swedish taxes as I will be classed as being “In transit”
Sweden says that if I stay in the country longer than three months then I need to apply for a full time residency permit, pay taxes etc.
So where the hell does that leave me? If I am employed by a UK employer that wants to me to continue paying UK taxes and I return every three weeks then does that mean I am just a boomerang visitor that does not need to apply for a resident permit? Or as I am living here should I do as the Swedish authorities say?
It really is too confusing right now. If anyone is employed by a UK employer but is living in Sweden then PLEASE let me know how you are handling this. My mind is about to explode!
