Klövern is appealing the case concerning further loss carryforwards totalling approximately SEK 5 billion to the Supreme Administrative Court.
In August 2010, the Administrative Court of Appeal notified a judgment that entails that Klövern will not be granted almost SEK 5 billion of new loss carryforwards deriving from the time when the company was engaged in IT operations.
“We have fought this case since 2003. There is every reason to appeal to the Supreme Administrative Court when we are convinced that we are right and large amounts are at stake. If there is a witnessed agreement in writing on purchase and sale of shares, which is binding on the parties, this must also apply for taxation”, says Klövern’s CEO Gustaf Hermelin.
“We think that it is possible that the Supreme Administrative Court will grant leave to appeal as the issue of what is a divestment of shares for tax purposes involves important issues of principle. It is no longer a matter of what piece or pieces of evidence exist in support of or against there being a binding agreement. This has already been entirely resolved at the Administrative Court of Appeal. The matter to be considered now is whether the evidence supporting a divestment achieves the evidentiary requirement of being probable”, say the company’s attorneys Thomas Andersson, Deloitte and Börje Leidhammar, Wistrand advokatbyrå.
