Swedish Taxation

The book Swedish Taxation: Developments since 1862 includes both a general description of the evolution of the specific taxes and an illustration of how these taxes could affect firms, investments or individuals. The presentation also includes extensive appendices, embracing all relevant tax schedules for the examined period. These data are unique in their consistency, thoroughness, breadth and timespan covered. All background data and tables in the book can be downloaded from this database.

IFNCD - IFN Corporate Database

The IFN Corporate Database covers all limited liability corporations in Sweden from 1998 to 2010. The original source of the data is the consulting agency PAR and the Swedish Companies Registration Office (“Bolagsverket”), the government agency that keeps track of limited liability corporations in Sweden.

International cooperation

Visiting researchers

Collaborating with others is essential for IFN as a research institute. Our researchers co-author articles with colleagues from other institutes, and many also teach at various universities and colleges.

As part of our extensive program of guest researchers, leading international researchers visit the institute. The visitors present and pursue their research as well as interact and cooperate with researchers at IFN.
