Swedish shipowners believe in tonnage tax from next year

The Swedish Shipowners' Association expects that the Swedish tonnage tax proposal will be approved so that it can be implemented from January 1st 2016. "We sense positive political signals," Per A. Sjöberger, head of corporate conditions at the association, tells Shippingwatch.

The Swedish Shipowners' Association is confident that a Swedish tonnage tax scheme more or less on par with the Danish, Norwegian and British schemes could be a reality about six months from now, on January 1st 2016.

"We estimate that there are positive political signals in terms of the tonnage tax scheme, and that's the most important thing for us right now. That there is a basis for the tonnage tax proposal and for implementing it. We are looking forward to the political treatment of the proposal this summer and during the fall, but as it looks now we believe that Sweden will get a tonnage tax scheme,"  Per A. Sjöberger, head of corporate conditions at the association, tells Shippingwatch.
