Big Interest in Household Services

More and more people are buying household services, after a recent change in the law giving generous tax deductions.

The law, which was introduced in July, allows people to deduct part of the tax levied on services such as housecleaning, gardening and home childcare.

The demand has also led to a 30 percent increase in the number of companies offering household services. The Swedish Tax Authority believes the trend will continue.

The most popular household services are reportedly cleaning and ironing.
