plan aimed at stopping economic crime

Tax authorities criticise government backdown

The proposal was aimed at stopping untaxed illegal jobs

The Swedish Tax Agency has criticised the government for withdrawing a proposal that would have forced employers to file salary information every month, rather than the current annual system.

Pia Bergman, who heads the agency’s efforts to fight economic crime, tells Swedish Radio News the backdown is “incomprehensible”. She says the government decision can only “ help criminal companies”, as monthly reports would make it harder for those with illegal workers and slave-like working conditions.

Finance Minister Anders Borg reportedly withdrew the proposal because he said it needed “more preparation”.

Earlier the proposal had been criticised by Minister for Enterprise Annie Lööf and the CEO of Swedish Federation of Business Owners Elisabeth Thand as creating a heavier bureaucratic burden for companies.
