The administrative court passes judgement regarding GARO’s income tax for 2011
The Swedish Administrative Court has passed a judgement that confirms the tax authority’s previous review of GARO’s income tax for 2011, which concerned GARO’s previous ownership in the limited partnership company JB Art KB, now liquidated. As a consequence hereof GARO’s tax base will increase by MSEK 23.1, which results in an additional tax of MSEK 6.1. The tax authority’s motion for tax penalties of MSEK 0.2 was rejected.
In its financial statements for 2014, GARO made a reservation in full for the additional tax. Thus, the judgement will not have any impact on the company’s results or profitability. GARO will not appeal the judgement by the administrative court.
