Netent fights Swedish tax bill

Published on 15 January 2013 by Casino Admin


Netent to fight Swedish Tax Agency decisionIt wasn’t a very pleasant  start of the year for Netent  when the Swedish Tax Agency delivered a bill to Sweden’s most successful and international leading casino software developing company. The tax bill, over the fiscal years 2007 – 2010, turned out to be much higher than expected (and even as was anticipated by the same Swedish Tax Agency) as apparently they forgot to include some numbers. Or maybe they weren’t using the same safe and reliable software Netent does to equip their casino games with.

Some cynical financial commentators already have mentioned the possibility the Swedish Tax Agency used Netent’s own Random Number Generating (RNG) software to “spice up” the bill al little. Of course this is impossible because the outcome, as the RNG of Netent really generates “random” numbers, could very well be Netent should be receiving from the Tax Agency instead of the other way around.

Netent announced already it is going to fight the bill with an official appeal against the Tax Agency’s decisions and claims their findings are “unfounded”. Their team of financial experts, as well as accountants PricewaterhouseCoopers and the Swedish law firm Lindahl, are analyzing whether the calculations of the Tax Agency are correct or not.

Of course this doesn’t change much for us “end users” of the Netent casino games in the most secure and trustworthy Netent Casinos, and most likely it won’t mean too much to Netent either. They’ll still remain the world’s most successful, award winning and leading casino software producer and will continue to provide us with the most exciting and rewarding casino games to be found online, of which the preview of yet-to-be-released Netent video slot Thief™ below can convince you.
