No effect of reduced a-bag fee – Smålandsposten

No effect of reduced a-bag fee – Smålandsposten

today 14:33 | Updated today 14:35

The effect of the sharp reduction in unemployment insurance fee came almost entirely.

The share is included in the UIF has rather fallen further.

At the end of last year was cut a -kasseavgiften sharply, with several hundred pieces a month for several unions, to about the same level as before the Alliance government raised the cost of 2007, but once the flow of membership became only marginally. Since January, 15,000 more joined an unemployment insurance fund, according to the Unemployment Insurance Board (IAF). That compares with about 400,000 who left in 2007.

And given the growing labor force further this year as the proportion who are in a UIF promptly declined or remained completely still last six months.

– It’s a little disappointing. We had expected a stronger member influx says Melker Ödebrink, Director of Unemployment Insurance Funds.

Worse Conditions

Why power failed to materialize is difficult to know.

– But One reason is that the conditions for receiving unemployment benefits is just as bad or even worse than 2007, he says.

While the government should be dissatisfied. Several of the alliance parties have talked about making insurance compulsory to get more insured against unemployment. No public goals for the number of new members at the fee reduction was not up. But a calculation in the Budget gives a hint about the hopes. It states 200 000 more members.

– Additional steps are required, including raising the roof and make the regulatory system more transparent. Now it’s hard to predict if you are entitled to compensation, says Melker Ödebrink.

Even bigger race

But there are unions that have been more successful than others. The hotel and restaurant union (HRF), which received the largest reduction in unemployment rates, has received nearly 4,000 more since year, the largest percentage increase of all insurance funds, seven percent. To a certain extent is it related to that member fall in the tray is halted and even reversed.

But, HRF President Ella Niia do not want to blame everything on unemployment insurance fee that scared away many from the tray.

– We do the analysis for simple if we blame everything on the charge, she says.

Does your name – sells it expensive – Swedish Dagbladet

Does your name – sells it expensive – Swedish Dagbladet

– creepy and threatening, says Anna-Klara Bratt.

At the beginning of the year I discovered the Internet Infrastructure Foundation (SE) that many names were registered as .se addresses other than the individuals themselves. Since contacted persons and offered to buy the domain for € 300.

One of those affected was Anna-Klara Bratt, executive editor of the webzine Feminist Perspective.

– It was a threatening call where a man said he believes that someone has bought the site for making an idol side of me. He made clear that it would be more expensive for me if I did not buy it back, she says.

With Journalist Association Research Group did feminist perspective a survey showed that at least 1 800 people, a large proportion of journalists, commentators and feminists had their names bought by the same person. Bratt police reported, but the investigation was closed.

– I’m surprised that the police so quickly put it down, she says.

This week the person again sent out an offer to the affected purchasing address.

The Foundation UK has previously warned that domain rascal keeps track of newly registered companies, and quickly buying up companies names .se addresses, but to systematically buy up large amounts of private persons name seems to be a new phenomenon.

– We can well think all of us that it is dirty and the closest to resemble extortion. But it is the reality and the laws and regulations that apply, says Peter Forsman, domain expert in SE.

It is first come for the registration of domain names. But it is possible to subsequently get the right to address the proceedings. The problem is that it costs a minimum of 4 000, although 2000 is paid back if you get right. Domain Dodger risks nothing – more than the cost of registering the name, normally one hundred.

But when thousands of personal domains registered, these are nevertheless significant efforts of the person behind.

– However, it is estimated home to one in three buys back so it is quite fast at home, says Peter Forsman.

Ewa Stenberg: Borg wants to put the screws on the opposition – Daily News

Ewa Stenberg: Borg wants to put the screws on the opposition – Daily News





Three questions for DN’s political commentator Dr Stenberg on Anders Borg’s statement on Saturday.






Three questions for DN’s political commentator Dr Stenberg on Anders Borg’s statement on Saturday.

The Finance Minister says it may need about 25 billion in austerity years 2017 and 2018, why he gives voters a message so gloomy?

 - He points out that the economy performs worse than expected, but I think he at the same time also want to put the screws on the opposition parties by getting their election manifesto to be seen as irresponsible.


 - Anders Borg says it is extremely important that the target for surplus in the public finances is reached precisely in 2018, and he points to the economic situation appears to be tougher than expected. If the Social Democrats and the other opposition parties accept his description so they have to take back some of his campaign promises delivered alternatively propose major new tax increases or reductions. If they do not, but suggests a more expansive budget so the government can instead criticize them for not taking responsibility for the Treasury.

  How do you think the Social Democrats will react?

 - Magdalena Andersson,’s economic spokesman, hinted this morning that with a social democratic economic policy and social policy, the economy will go so well that she can drop the requirement to fund the reforms of earned later in this term. This suggests that the Social Democrats will promise unfunded reforms in its election manifesto, which can be carried out later in the term. It also suggests that S does not believe it is necessary to reach the surplus target already by 2018.

  One reason that Anders Borg wants to tighten the economy about three or four years is that the number of refugees coming to Sweden. What does that mean for the Treasury?

 - Anders Borg has projected increased spending on integration policies and refugees at about twelve billion per year in 2017 and the 2018 But he has not included any income in the form of tax payments when the refugees start working. This despite the fact that he says that immigrants are rapidly coming to work in Sweden, and that the Syrians and Iraqis who come here are relatively well educated. In time, this immigration revenue for Sweden, according to the finance minister, but he has not put it into the calculations. Instead, he stresses that the outlook is uncertain.

The demand is great confirmed by Johan Eriksson at Selfiebutiken.se recently taken the pin into its stock.

Anders Borg (M): It has 25 billion in Treasury – Swedish Dagbladet

As the rain poured down over Harpsundsvägen when Finance Minister Anders Borg presented the government’s view of the economy coming term of office was a weather metaphor almost inevitable.

– We are now in a position where we have a position of strength and we’ll get back to the levees. For there is a weather as we know always recur, and it is winter, said Anders Borg.

During the press conference, he spoke of a slower recovery of the Swedish economy, with growth of 1.9 percent for 2014 and at 3 per cent for next year. He also announced that, if the Government is to achieve its surplus target of 1 percent of GDP in 2018, have 25 billion in the Treasury in 2017 and 2018. He also mentioned that he talked about earlier in the week that “troubles elsewhere “will mean increased costs for the reception of refugees in Sweden 12 billion per year in the coming term.

is the reason why you think that these budgetary reinforcements needed?

– We make a broader assessment of the Swedish economy where we see the effects of reduced income due to concerns in the world, and slower growth in the United States and Germany.

– Then we have a need to meet a right sharp increase in asylum reception. Will it work well, we must notify Employment Services and Immigration Service that they have the resources to wait and we must give municipalities clear information, he says.

To cancel the extra the billions the government proposes including banks and insurance companies should be taxed more heavily. Moreover want Anders Borg raise money through the establishment of an investigation to counter tax evasion in the commercial property sector.

How much does the tax increases in dollars?

– There is a number of years in the future and may change, but as it stands in order of size are we talking about roughly 17-18 billion.

The Government also proposes that taxes on environmentally unfriendly cars to be increased, a proposal that the Centre Party has pushed for. In addition to that the government limit certain expenses, including the save on the civil service and local government costs.

Anders Borg’s growth forecast has received a mixed response from the banks. According to Annika Winsth, chief economist of Nordea, the partially optimistic.

– For the current year’s growth of around two percent a fairly reasonable assessment. However, I think he is too optimistic for the coming years, especially in the long term. Our assessment is rather that we should have a growth rate of 2-2.5 percent even in 2015 and 2016 there is the much higher, she said to TT.

Robert Bergqvist, chief economist SEB, told the news agency:

– The picture he paints of the Swedish economy by 2018 is a very positive image. Since it can be noted that he has a serious tone when it comes to space ventures, but the figures speak for themselves – the Swedish economy is on the right path, he says.

Borg: Higher taxes for banks – Swedish Dagbladet

– We need to secure the levees to have freedom of action in the next crisis. We believe that there is a need for budgetary strengthening of SEK 25 billion to reach surplus target in 2018, said the Borg at the press conference on Harpsundsvägen.

At the press conference, Anders Borg surprised at the criticism that came out during the week against he and Carl Bildt called a press conference to describe the economic impact of the increasing flow of refugees to Sweden.

– It is not normal that we have such shifts in the public finances of tens of billions that come between June and August, and of course must I report what caused it, said Borg.

He also estimates that the refugee stream may increase in the early autumn.

– We can not rule out that it will be 2500 to 3000 people a week in early September.

– It does cost, but there’s no reason not to stand up for the common consensus that we actually have in the asylum and eventually this will give a true and substantial profit for Sweden, said Borg.

In a press writes Anders Borg that he believes that taxes from the financial sector should increase. He believes that the Alliance Government agree that the future budget increases mainly be done through income increases but it will also be necessary to reduce spending growth. Tax receipts from the financial sector should increase and environmental governance should be strengthened through higher taxes on passenger cars, and vehicles that have particularly high emissions of greenhouse gases, says the government.

Magdalena Andersson about the economic situation – Swedish Dagbladet

On Saturday morning featured Magdalena Andersson, economic policy spokesperson for the Social Democrats, their views on the economic situation in Sweden.

at a press conference in Flen, just hours before Finance Minister Anders Borg expected to present the government’s views on the economy at a press conference in Harpsundsvägen, a half hour drive away

Magdalena Andersson began to point to a number of positive effects in the outside world.

– Unemployment in the United States is down to 6 percent now, it’s a hefty reduction, which affect the world economy. Even in Europe, the economy continues to stabilize.

– We are finally seeing positive growth, which goes up by two per cent in 2015 and 2016, it naturally also affect Sweden, she says.

Nevertheless, the unemployment rate in Sweden has become entrenched at a very high level, according to Magdalena Andersson.

– We have the current position of around 70 000 people who have been unemployed for more than two years, she says.

During the press conference commented she is also the government’s actions in recent weeks about the growing refugee reception and the costs Anders Borg says that it will mean for Sweden.

– I will not diminish the fact that people flee to Sweden, but do not enlarge. It is a record that, like other needs are handled within the regular budget process.

She believes that the projections from the Swedish Migration Board is uncertain, as well as many other lines; that defense purchases of material and labor office that sees the need for increased resources.

– This is just one of several growing budget items that the government has chosen to focus on, it’s obviously just electioneering, she said

So you do not share the government’s description of the coming refugee reception

– I’m just saying that this is one of several issues that are handled within the budget, there are several items where there is a risk of increased spending. It must of course be vigilant.

According to government estimates will the reception of refugees that would entail a cost of 12 billion per year over the next four years.

Many have gone on to attend and submit their tax returns electronically. It also means that the Tax receives more declarations are incomplete.

-Of those who are in their electronic returns and making changes, such as adding an attachment, so many people then go out and forget to press on “submit,” said Kay bunks, business developer at the Swedish Tax Agency.

In addition, no reminders were sent out in June this year to those who have not submitted their tax returns on time, which made the previous years. Instead, the Tax Agency sent out subpoenas directly.

That’s a clear difference in years, and I can imagine that this has helped. So we’ll consider next year if we are to have reminders again.

Almost all of the 160 000 who got injunction to declare – and thus also a reminder fee – need to submit a certified statement.

– So far we have discovered that we have mistakenly sent out notice to a number of young children in child pension, and three cases. But overall, it’s very, very few who got it wrong, says bunks.


Paltry savings rates opens the door for “ruff switch” – Swedish Dagbladet

Paltry savings rates opens the door for "ruff switch" – Swedish Dagbladet

Do you have money in a savings account at one of the big banks are in the present situation is not likely that you will be rich. If you also do not want to tie up your money for a longer period, it is virtually impossible. For example, SEB offers a maximum 0.45 percent fixed interest rate for one-year savings in the bank’s investment account. Savers are upset about the low interest rates, said Claes Hemberg at Avanza Bank.

– Especially our older savers. They have been featured on interest rates of 8 percent, and in comparison with it is it’s shamefully low interest rates right now.

Swedbank looks even darker. There, they offered the most 0.10 percent in interest on borrowed funds in the bank’s savings account. But then you have to save at least 50 000. If you want to lock up the money offered to 0.30 percent in savings rates, but even there the required minimum of 50 000 in borrowed funds.

Best savings rates may be in the current situation on SBAB offering 1.40 per cent savings interest from the first crown. Nordea is not far behind, offering 1.30 percent interest rate with a one-year term. However, it is required to invest at least 10 000 in the savings account. Handelsbanken seek the golden mean, and offers 0.75 per cent on its future account where you save on a range between 1 and 10 years. But to unlock the money in savings accounts is now among the worst you can do, according Hemberg.

– Interest rates will remain low for quite some time to come, so we must not think that this is only temporary for the it is not. I think you should think about whether there is any other form of savings you can feel comfortable. You can for example put in a short term högräntefond, it gives 3-4 per cent and it’s not heavenly figures either, but it is still better.

The highest savings account interest rate which are covered by deposit insurance can be found right now at Svea Direct, an affiliate of the credit market company Svea Ekonomi AB. The reason that Svea Ekonomi can offer such a high savings rate seems to be in the company’s other activities involving the collection agency in several countries in Europe. But even Svea Direct has been forced to lower their deposit rates. As of August 25 is the variable deposit rate at 1.80 percent for savings accounts and 2.10 percent on the capital account.

If you choose to look at companies that are not covered by the government’s deposit can however find several accounts that offer significantly higher interest rates. The highest deposit rate will be today at Swespar, 4Trails and 24 Money, where you can save up to 50 000 at an interest rate of 10 percent. Because the companies are not covered by deposit insurance, it is considered as a risky investment.

– The easiest Council one can give is that you should choose an account with insert warranty. Interest may not be important in that case. Secondly, you should look for good interest rates, today is the probably around 1.5 to 2 percent, says Claes Hemberg.

Akelius Spar is a another company without deposit insurance and offers in the current situation a maximum interest rate of 5 per cent for deposits of up to 50 000. Akelius is basically a real estate company and the borrowed capital will go to the owner company Akelius Residentials expansion, ie, real estate projects. If you choose to save in Akelius get priority access to rental units in the company’s portfolio. The company counts as a low-risk option of Upplysningscentralen that gives the company the highest credit rating. But even if the risk looks low out, be careful, says Hemberg.

– The vast majority of accounts that are not covered by warranty are ruff-sponsored by the simple fact that interest rates are something we use when we want to use money in the near future. When you can not afford to get rid of the money. It does not matter if they invest safely, if they do not have deposit insurance, it is not relevant.
