Hi everyone,

concerning the special tax regime for foreign researchers I am looking for an answer to a more specific question. Unfortunately I cannot find the relevant information on the internet, so I am writing here hoping for an answer.

Under this special tax regime, a basic allowance for central government taxation is still given. The amount of this allowance does normally depend on income. Does the allowance still depend on 100% of earnings or only on 75% (since we have the 25% exemption)?

Can someone provide me with a calculation example that compares the normal case and the special case of a foreign researcher?

Thanks!

...and note that if your ultimate intention is to try and stay in Sweden, you may be back taxed for the full duration. The relief is only available for 3 years, and you are only to stay up-to 5 years.

I've never head about anyone actually successfully applying for it. In fact, they probably automatically reject every case as taxes are a holy virtue in Sweden.

Just don't get your hopes up.

I have already checked the link and googled a lot. Unfortunately I cannot find an answer to my question whether the normal basic allowance (which you would also get if you were taxed under normal rules) depends then on 100% or 75% of your income.

Any help?

It says it very clearly in the linked document. You first take your total taxable income, reduce it by 25% and then apply taxation as usual.
