In Sweden, VAT (Swedish: Moms) is applied by a standard 25% rate on
almost all goods and services,
including registration fees for congresses and conferences and participation in
exhibitions and trade shows.
Some exceptions are however valid, as for example hotel accommodation (12% VAT
rate) and passenger transportation (6% VAT rate).
The VAT is therefore considerable affecting the cost incurred by your company. Your
company, as a non-Swedish company except for insurance, banking, educational
and health-care companies and a few other company types, is however entitled to
recover the Swedish VAT. European Tax Service can assist you in obtaining refund
of VAT for all expenses related to your company’s stay in Sweden.
