13 May 2020 klockan 15.25

A person selling a private house or flat at a profit and buying a new house of flat can be granted deferment of taxation on capital gains. The Government has now proposed that the ceiling for the maximum amount of such a deferment is to be raised from SEK 1.4 million to SEK 3 million for the sale of private housing carried out after 30 June 2020.

The Riksdag voted in favour of the Government's proposal. The amendment will come into force on 1 July 2020.
