Under the draft legislation, multinational groups with their ultimate parent company in Sweden, as well as Swedish companies that are liable for tax in another country through permanent establishments, with revenues of more than SEK 8 billion per year must prepare an income tax report with information on their income and the taxes they pay in different countries. This report must be made public by submitting it to the Swedish Companies Registration Office and must be made available on the company's website.
