The Swedish Tax Agency has endorsed Tele2's appeals regarding claims related to interest deductions on intercompany loans. The company will release 371 million Swedish kronor in provisions for taxes, with a positive effect on its second quarter 2021 results.

The Swedish Tax Agency has for the years 2013-2018 denied Tele2 Group deductions for interest expenses on intercompany loans, resulting in a negative tax effect of 350 million kronor, and associated interest of 21 million kronor as of 31 March 2021. Tele2 appealed the decisions, it previously made a provision for the total amount of 371 million kronor.

Following a ruling by the Supreme Administrative Court, the Swedish Tax Agency has now endorsed Tele2's claims for interest deductions for the years 2015-2018, resulting in a positive tax effect for Tele2 of 200 million kronor.

The remaining interest deduction claims for the years 2013-2014 with a tax effect of 150 million kronor are currently under review by the Administrative Court of Appeal in Stockholm.

Tele2 said it will also review how the Tax Agency´s revised position may impact Tele2´s taxes for 2019 and 2020, considering applicable legislation.
