Dear Kim. Thank you for your open letter to me in the Newspaper 11. February. I will basically only your best. I'm not against the that the customers leave more money than what is in the bill. I am, however, that it shall comply with the rights such as sick pay, parental benefits and pension contributions for all compensation for work.
Previously, it was the waitresses themselves, who should report tipsen to the irs. Few or none made it. Then followed there would be no rights with the proceeds. It thinks not on before the need for rights arises – when you are sick, have children or retire.Now tipsen be taxed
Why has the government from 2019 changed the rules so that it is the employer's responsibility to report, deduct tax and pay employer's national insurance contributions also pay in the form of tips.
As finance minister, I am naturally concerned that it will give better compliance and a more fair tax system. By treating the tip as other income is it easier for you employees to pay correct tax: You as an employee, don't have to keep records and report tipsen to follow the rules.
Increased rights can indeed get pretty great value for you as an employee. Let me take an example. The waiter "Stine" serves approx. 430.000 kroner in the year. This is a 100 000 tips. If tipsen goes straight into the pocket of "Stine" instead of the employer reports the salary and she pays tax on it, she goes miss 87.600 million in parental benefits calculated on an annual basis if she have children.Now drag the Swedish waitresses home
The day she a pensioner, the pension is from her NAV about 17.400 million lower per year than it would have been about tipsen was reported as part of the salary her. You get into less tips, of course, the increase in sick pay, parental benefits and pension are lower, but the tax will also be correspondingly lower.
When you are young, a life as a pensioner seem far away. But maybe you're going to thank me, the day you become a pensioner?
