Taxes, tax numbers and registration as employer
To register with the Tax Administration, you need to complete the foreign company registration form. The Tax Administration then uses your information to determine which taxes you are required to pay, which can include:
Within a few weeks after registration, the Tax Administration will send you a letter outlining the relevant information. You may also receive a VAT number and a tax return form. You do not need to submit a separate request for a VAT number. Before you can hire staff, you will first need to register as an employer for social security purposes with the Tax Administration. You will then receive a payroll tax number and several forms to fill in. The payroll tax number is relevant for filing your annual payroll tax return and communication with the Tax Administration.
You must notify your tax office in writing of any changes in your name or address details. If you open an outlet at another location, you do not need to report the other outlet to the Tax Administration.
Previous owner's tax regime
If you take over (a part of) a business, you must comply with arrangements which the Tax Administration made with the previous owner.
