Svalner – No. 1 in Sweden for Independent Tax Advice

Publicerad 16 september, 2019

Svalner is Sweden’s leading independent tax advisory firm. Not only that, thanks to Svalner’s active membership in WTS Global, they are also part of the world’s largest independent international tax network, active in over 100 countries. Svalner is a full-service firm offering comprehensive tax advisory services with a focus on transactions. The firm is now strengthening its range of transaction services by adding financial advisory services.


With around 60 lawyers specialising in tax law and the power of the world’s largest independent tax network behind it, Svalner has established itself as Sweden’s leading independent tax advisory firm. The WTS Global network means Svalner can help foreign clients establish themselves in Sweden and can assist Swedish companies operating internationally to expand and do business abroad.

– Sweden is an export country. Thanks to our international network, we can follow our Swedish clients when they do business abroad, providing independent advice in each respective country. The biggest advantage is that our network focuses on tax, which is unique, explains Viktor Sandberg, Managing Partner at Svalner.

The power of independence
What makes Svalner different? Independence. This means that the firm doesn’t need to factor other commitments into its advice, nor requirements for rotating auditors, as accounting firms must do, for example. Robert Tranquilli, Partner at Svalner, explains that the firm will further strengthen its position and services this autumn by adding financial advisory services to its portfolio:

– We plan to develop our services by supplementing tax advice with financial advice in connection with transactions. We’re also setting up a division called Transaction Services, which covers both tax and financial advice and, as such, will challenge accounting firms’ monopoly in this area. Accordingly, in addition to tax advice, we’ll also offer financial due diligence services for vendors and buyers, valuation services and more. Combined, our tax advisory and financial services and independent status give us a unique position in the Swedish and Nordic markets, he says.

Cutting-edge expertise
Sandberg explains that Svalner’s strong brand and impressive size are due to its advisory teams, which include some of Sweden’s foremost tax lawyers:

– Clients often comment that the staff we assign to our commissions have a great deal of expertise and experience in senior positions. Together with our accessibility and client-oriented approach, this cutting-edge expertise is what makes our clients as satisfied as they are, he concludes.
