"Google moved the 204 billion to Bermuda in 2017, an increase from the $ 157 billion the year before (TT 4 jan). It is in virtually every vinstkrona you earned outside the united states. Bermuda is the corporate tax rate to zero percent."
"Companies like Apple and Facebook in the same way."
"What does it help then to country after country in a couple of decades fjäskat for the multinational companies by constantly lowering taxes?"
"Between 1985 and 2018 have corporate tax rates in the world more than halved, from 49 per cent to 24 per cent. This also applies to Sweden. Here lay the treasure of the 80's to just over 50 percent, and has gradually been reduced to 22 per cent. Now at the end of the year, it was lowered another notch to 21.4 percent."
"at the same time, it should be said, has reduced the corporate tax deductions."
"nArgumenten have been the same regardless of the government: to attract capital, create jobs and ultimately new tax revenue."
"We do this because it is crucial for where to put investments and factories or the head offices of multinational companies,” reasoned the then minister for enterprise, Annie Lööf cut 2013 (the Echo 13 sep 2012)."
"”The proposed changes are expected to lead to Sweden becoming stronger and more attractive for investments,” echoed finance minister Magdalena Andersson when she announced the latest reduction (Dagens Industri, 19 June 2017)."
"It is this that has been called globalization – capital opportunities to move production and thus play out countries against each other. The problem is that all the other states feel the same way, so that a downward spiral is created, where the only winners, ultimately, are the capital owners."
"Sometimes it happens in the open."
"”A key driver has been to the united kingdom lowers the corporate tax rate substantially, despite the country's budgetary problems and that we in Sweden have companies that can locate there,” explained the People's economic-political spokesperson Carl B Hamilton 2012."
"nMen states is partially ripped off. It bets that bid against each other for investment, when the big problem is how easy it is to move money, not production."
"that is The opinion of one of the world leading researchers in the field, the French economist Gabriel Zucman."
"”the Decline in rates is the result of wrong policies in the high-tax, is not a necessary by-product of globalization”, he writes in a study from last year, The missing profits of nations."
"Where's he trying to together with a couple of colleagues calculate how much the multinational companies hiding away in tax havens. In ordinary countries, shows Zucman, multinational companies to lower profits in relation to wages than domestic enterprises. In tax havens, the benefits are conversely grotesque, in Ireland, they are at 800 per cent of the wage cost, in Puerto Rico the double."
"It depends on bokföringsmanövrar á la Google. Profits from the countries outside their home country, where the companies actually have operations and employ people is transferred to the countries where it does not in practice have any business at all, but where taxes are negligible."

"Almost 40 percent of the multinational companies' profits are being moved in this way (2015)."
"nMen instead of chasing tax havens seriously – which is difficult and costly – focus the tax authorities on building up systems for the exchange of information between high-tax. Sweden can get home the hidden profits to tax from Germany, and vice versa. Which, you understand, is a grave bug: ”Countries that are not tax havens are stealing revenue from one another while allowing tax havens to flourish,” the researchers write."
"When the researchers turn on the roast and trying to see where the profits really are produced, and where they ought to have been taxed, it turns out that the big losers are the EU-countries and many developing countries. EU countries lose approximately 20% of their tax revenues from corporation tax."
"They give no specific figures for Sweden, but if we think that Sweden is an average EUROPEAN country in this context, there is an annual loss to the state of around € 24 billion. It is level with the expenditure of the police or the state's expenses for gender equality and the newcomers ' introduction."
"the spirit of the super-rich to avoid paying the bill. We get the broken rail, an a-cash you can not live on narrow rights for the disabled, a public debate about how much the poor cost and politicians who kills our confidence in the future with the mantra that everything is too expensive."
