Skattepunkten AB is a firm of consultants working with all kinds of Swedish taxes. Through our international contact net we also work with taxes in other countries. We help all kinds of tax payers, individuals as well as small and big companies.
We strive to ensure that our clients have to pay as little tax as possible. At the same time, the company’s philosophy is that everything we are involved with shall be above board and legal. All documents must be able to be presented to the relevant authorities irrespective of whether they are on paper or in digital form.
As a consequence, our philosophy also entails that we never speak in terms of risks of detection.
We often meet with our clients but it is a fact that most of our clients we never see. Then we only work with telephone, skype and e-mails.
