The Swedish Tax Agency recently presented a memorandum that proposed the introduction of the term ‘economic employer’ into Swedish tax legislation. The formal employer concept is proposed to be replaced by an ‘economic employer’– this will imply a change on how to distinguish an employment relationship when applying the Swedish, internal so-called 183 days rule as well as when interpreting the 183 days rule in tax treaties where Sweden is a contracting state.
