    I'll give you some numbers which may change your mind.

    31% income tax (for low paying jobs. If you make more, you get higher percentage)
    25% VAT
    Gasoline price about ?0.8 a litre for 98 octan (very cheap by swedish standards as there is a gasoline war between different brands)

    I think they have removed the gift tax.
    But if you have a fortune over a specific amount. You pay a special fortune tax for that every year

    Still considering

    Your pay packet must reflect the higher cost of living though. I have visited a few times, my Uncle designs suspension parts for Volvo (although has just quit) so have been over to stay with him.

    Yep, swings and roundabouts.

    95RON is 87p/litre average
    Optimax is 95p/litre average.

    Tax is 25% VAT 17.5%. However, we have a dozen other 'stealth' taxes to fleece us elsewhere.

    We also have things like fuel duty (a tax) on which we pay VAT. Therefore, we get tax on a tax. This happens for car import taxes too (and various other things).

    Topper.
    Thank god rot the fuel price war
    Don't know what I would do without it



    Nicely.

    Ha ha. We got the tax on tax thing to.
    First there is fuel cost, and then energy tax and then a special CO2 tax and on all that there is 25% VAT

    I don't know much about taxes. I just pay'em and hope that they'll go away

    My biggest question is where all that money goes to

    Oh yeah, we just spent ?2 700 000 on a road-tax system around stockholm who nobody wants, And another big amount of money on a state of the art railroad-track to northern Sweden where almost nobody lives or work
