Sorry but the above is utter and complete BS. The company (assuming a proper, AB-style limited liability stock company) is taxed at the place where it is registered. Income from such company, if OP choses to withdraw it, will be taxed in Sweden, but that is another story. Corporate tax payed by the company is payed in the country where it is registered.

I actually do own a few such companies elsewhere in EU, so there you are.

I am stressing that this needs to be a proper stock-based company, not some personal incorporation or such.

Wait a sec - what do you mean by "applying for EU Passport" ?

Ok, I should have been more specific. No escalators - that would just be silly. I am looking for stone or wooden stairs leading to e.g. top of a hill or some castle or a ski jumping hill.

Please, I'm getting desperate unsure.gif

I just use a few wads of 500 SEK bills, they isolate very well.

Here is another idea:

Could anyone kindly point me to the longest (outdoor) staircase in the capital area? I am looking at hundreds of steps at least, such as those staircases that can be found in some large European cities. Can venture out of the inner city by train or tunnelbana to satisfy my obsession.

Thanks in advance,

Sorry, you're wrong again. Luck has nothing to do with this. Let me repeat: there are tons of jobs available in this country and hundreds of thousands of people with foreign names employed in all imaginable positions.

However, do let us know how it went after you become a Svensson rolleyes.gif .

No, it's because you are doing it wrong. Go and meet them in person.

( There are hundreds of thousands of people succesfully employed in Sweden while having a foreign name, myself included. )

How much data do you need? Operator 'Tre' has a prepaid data card for 299 SEK, 20 GB included, this is the best. Others have them too but with a considerably smaller limit. Other than that, Comviq has 3GB for 89kr with a one week limit.

Can you suggest other way to find candidate apart from LinkedIn?

Sure, GitHub for example.

Do you have a web page where you list your open available positions?

LinkedIn is the best way these days to find them.

In any case, if you want any results, you have to be much more specific (with regards to the expertise domain) than IT with 10+ years, that does not mean anything at all.

I suppose it's a long duration contract or a permanent position? In that case, the answer is: no.

It appears to me that you have all the access to the material necessary to become fluent in Swedish. As to the being lazy, look what this guy did, seems to have worked just fine:

Check again. Out of the 34 ads, at least 8 do not mention students or a definite/limited rental period. That would mean that it is 77% that are not suitable for you. In any case, how many apartments do you need?

I had to do the same a long time ago. What I did, I think, was that I changed language in online banking to English and then printed out the statement. It was the only thing I could do anyway as they wanted to see all my account transactions for the past few months (crazy, I know). That was Nordea though..

Well OK, there are places like this, a "house" in "Stockholm" for 2500 SEK / month:
http://www.blocket.se/stockholm/Vackert_be...m?ca=11&w=1

but getting from there to university seems a bit of a nightmare. First, you need to get to Järna station, that will be 3km. Even in the middle of the winter, it's doable in 15 minutes on a bicycle.

Then, you take the train to Stockholm Central, changing at Södertälje, 54 minutes total. From Stockholm Central you continue by subway to Universitetet station, the final destination, taking 10 minutes.

We are already at 79 minutes travel time, and you need to add another 20 minutes or so for the wait time while you change trains.

Ok, I am done with my polytunnel research. I could not find anything at all in Stockholm. My theory is that it's too north (and hence cold) for such a construction.

Other cities more south have various options available, they will deliver by post as well:

Polytunnel, entire kit, really cheap, in Göteborg:
http://www.sneckenstrom.se/drivbankar-vaxt...rad-stomme.html

This company sells really pro stuff, all components for polytunnels, in Skåne:
http://www.tradgardsteknik.se/katalog/kate...vaxthus/140/11/

Another pro company, sells pro large scale installations. This is practically in Stockholm, I guess I was wrong about my theory:
http://www.progro.se/produktkatalog/web/enterab.asp?PkatId=5

Here is a plastics manufacturer from Skåne, they only sell the poly film but I guess you could ask them where to get the frame components:

There is only one way to hide your details from websites like ratsit.se who take your details from Skatteverket. That is to apply for a protected identity. Unless your life is at risk, you will not get one.

I would like to join the discussion and mention that putting your life at risk is not absolutely necessary to get protected identity in Sweden. Working in certain professions will get one this kind of status as well, for example being an employee in at least some units of Säpo.
