Financial Awareness for newcomers in West Sweden

5 October 2023, 17:30 - 19:00
Järnvågsgatan 3, 413 27 Gothenburg

Why would you focus on financial awarenss  when paying taxes in Sweden is very straightforward? If everything appears correct on your mandatory, pre-printed annual tax return, reporting your taxes may simply involve sending a text message from your mobile phone to the Swedish Tax Agency (Skatteverket) to confirm this. 

However, you may have some practical questions, especially when newlly arrived.

Welcome to an evening seminar about finacial awareness! 

Our enthusiast practitioner this time is Annamalai Ramanathan, an Instrument Engineer by profession and passionate about finances. He has been  living in the Nordic countries for the last 12 years and has moved to Sweden in 2017. 

He is passionate about personal finance topics which are important in the life of expats such as Taxes, Insurance, investments and savings. Therefore, he has started a company  and is helping internationals  living in Sweden, this way creating financial awareness on various topics. 

During this lecture, you will receive answers to questions such as: 

  • Where to find the right information about Taxes, Insurance, Investments and Savings?
  • What is specific to Sweden when I declare taxes, as a newcomer? 


A light dinner will be served during the event.

There will be possibility to ask specific questions and network before and after the lecture.


Please RSVP by 3 October.

A warm welcome!
