Tax Tips
Take the right pay

If you are working in their own private companies can take out a dividend from the company that is only taxed at 20 per cent capital tax. This applies to dividend equivalent to a so-called threshold amount.
Limit amount may be calculated at a flat rate according to a simplification rule. For 2015 this amount to 156 475 SEK.
Your distribution space can be greater than this if your company pays the salary. But for you to put a wage based space to the limit, 2015, you or someone close to you this year collect a salary of at least the minimum amount of:

* 341 400 SEK plus five percent of the total wages of the company and its subsidiaries and
* 569 000 SEK

NOTE Are you the sole owner and the one who takes a salary from the company, you calculate a wage based space next year if this year will take a salary of at least 359,368 SEK.
Are you taking out such a salary so get half of your salary added to limit the amount next year.
