Practice Areas / Depreciation optimisation

Real property-oriented businesses are capital intensive. Swedish tax legislation allows advantageous accrual of the annual deductions for diminution in value and depreciation that are available as a consequence of investments in tangible fixed assets – buildings, ground facilities, and equipment. The rules lead to positive effects on cash flow and reduced tax expenses. There are a number of other tax questions that can also be affected by the classification, nature, and scope of property investments, including determining the amount of the interest deduction, the amount of property tax and stamp duty, and the possibilities for VAT deduction and the Repairs, Conversion, Extension deduction.

 

In order to take advantage of these opportunities, we combine our expertise in tax law regulations with our knowledge of construction and building costs accounting. We can identify correct information and secure the documentation that provides support for correct and optimal tax management in order to find financial benefits and concrete savings – merely by applying the law correctly.

 

Svalner’s depreciation optimisation specialist group has in-depth experience with tax questions tied to investments in property management businesses, tax values attributable to real property, and deductions linked to these values. The group regularly provides expert advice to many of Sweden’s largest property owners in all industry sectors.
