Sweden Permits Input Tax Deduction on Some Restructuring Costs

May 25, 2017 Becca Haile

On May 16, Sweden’s Supreme Administrative Court ruled that a “parent company is allowed to deduct input VAT in respect of consultancy services acquired in connection with the sale of shares in subsidiaries during the restructuring of operations,” on the grounds that “the costs of the services [are] considered to have a direct and immediate link with the parent company’s overall financial operations.” The “direct and immediate link” test used by the court has been affirmed several times by the Court of Justice of the European Union. The full opinion of the Swedish court can be found here.
