specifically, at 161 million Norwegian kroner, equivalent to 120 million Danish kroner.
It writes the Norwegian finansmedie Today's business community that boasts.
According to the media it is specified that Petter Stordalen has not had any income between 2015 and 2017. Yet he has in the same period raised almost half a billion dollars in dividends from the holding company to the Strawberry Fields and assumed that this money was tax free.
Today's business community that boasts also writes that the Norwegian skattestyrelse – Skatteetaten – in 2018 and 2019 amended Stordalens statement and estimated that the yield is taxable income.
Thus says Petter Stordalen suddenly should have a skattesmæk of 120 million Danish crowns.
the Media has tried to get a comment from the Norwegian billionaire. He referred, however, to the cfo in the Strawberry Fields, the Mads Prepare Koch, who writes the following in a response to Today's business community that boasts:
"Petter has given the authorities enough information to make an assessment, and their assessment is that the income must be raised."
According to Today's business community that boasts is the profits of Petter Stordalens holding company Strawberry Fields built up through gains from the sale of hotelselskaber.
And such winnings are tax free.
When Petter Stordalen, in turn, takes money out of the company, it should according to the medium show up as an income and thus trigger the dividend tax.
The Norwegian billionaire, which in October bought the travel company Spies in the past have been out and defend the Norwegian tax system
"I think that the tax burden in Norway is reasonable, and it is doing that I think we should pay our taxes with pride," he said to VG in november 2018, and added:
"Should the welfare state be so we must be willing to pay the tax. To show corporate social responsibility begins with understanding why you pay taxes. It is an investment in our welfare society, which is the main reason why we are the world's best country to live in."
According to Today's business community that boasts Petter Stordalen paid 25 million Norwegian kroner, equivalent to well over 19 million Danish kroner in taxes from 2015 to 2017.
In 2018, he must have raised a yield of well of 67 million Danish kroner in its holding to the Strawberry Fields.Date Of Update: 15 December 2019, 16:00
