Family law

Family law

15 September · 2017

Personal advice

Reviewing the family situation – and understanding how certain family constellations affect family members – is important. It ensures that all documents are in order and also reduces the risk of possible conflicts. Marriage contracts are needed, for example, to ensure that certain property is not included in any future division of the joint estate. Cohabitants should also draw up documents.

 

Solutions for each specific situation

A will is another example of a very important document. Drawing up a will is about clarifying and presenting a person’s last will and testament, which is often a great support for the survivors. For spouses living in relationships with children from a previous marriage, it is particularly important to draw up a will. This is because children from a previous marriage compromise the spouse’s right of inheritance and these children can always claim their lawful share.

We help customers review each specific situation for the whole family or for the individual. All our customers, regardless of where they live in Sweden, can receive personal advice in a meeting, by phone or by email.

 

Legal documents

We draw up a number of legal documents, the most common of which are as follows:

  • Wills
  • Marriage contracts
  • Cohabitation agreements
  • Deeds of gift
  • Co-ownership agreements
  • Estate inventories

 

We can help you review your situation and see what solution is best for your specific situation. Send us an email to familjejuridik@soderbergpartners.se and we will contact you.

Tax

15 September · 2017

With us, you have the opportunity to receive tax advice. When advising you, we go through your situation that is of relevance to taxation. You are then given clear guidance and advice on what can be done.

Tax advice is not an exact science, particularly given the contradictions between protection of private ownership and justifiable public financing. This has meant that changes to rules as a result of parliamentary decisions – or clarification by courts – are virtually part of everyday life. Consequently, it is difficult to keep up to date on your own.

 

Our advisory services

The issues we help with often arise from the fact that something has changed. For example, a customer has started his own business or plans to transfer the business to a related party. Another scenario is a foreign move or foreign savings being brought back to Sweden.

In such situations, there is every justification to seek support from an expert who can clarify the legal situation. It is also important for the advisor to recommend a correct course of action and safely implement appropriate measures, ensuring that this is done in accordance with the regulations.

Another reason to seek our advice is if the Swedish Tax Agency questions anything in an individual’s tax return. Many people may feel powerless when pitted against the Tax Agency. We ensure that the Tax Agency does not go beyond the scope it has been given by the legislator in its decision and that the matter is handled in a competent manner.

 

Prerequisites for good advice

In-depth knowledge of the tax system and many years of experience are important prerequisites for providing good tax advice. But that is not enough. We must also have thorough knowledge of each customer. That is why we are committed to personal advisory meetings with you as a customer.

For us, it is crucial that you as a customer feel confident in the advice we give you. That is one reason why we always document the advice. It means that you can return to the document later and consider the scope or terms of individual provisions.

Whether your issue is large or small, we can help you to analyse the problem and propose appropriate measures. If you have any questions or concerns about tax, please contact us at skatt@soderbergpartners.se.
