Breakfast at the Consulate


Welcome to a Breakfast meeting at the Swedish Consulate!

Some of you may have received a letter from your Swedish
financial institutes stating:

Under US regulations,
certain financial services may only be provided to clients resident in the US if the service provider maintains a US license for
the financial service concerned

Living and working in the US is inspiring as well as
challenging. We all want to obey the law but it is sometimes hard to understand
what applies to us and where to look for help. The new US Foreign Account Tax
Compliance Act (FATCA) coming into effect July 1, 2013 will change the way
Swedish financial institutes are sharing and are able to provide services to
Swedish citizens living and working in the US.

On February 28th, from 8.30 am to 10am,
Getswedish in collaboration  with the The
Swedish Consulate  and Swedish American
Chamber of Commerce Seattle  has invited
Madeleine Thunström, a Swedish tax lawyer from SEB to participate via video
conference to help us explain how this will effect entrepreneurs or individuals
with Swedish or dual citizenship currently living in the US. The setting will
be informal and a light breakfast will be served.

This meeting will focus on the subject from an individual
perspective. Ms Thunström will not give individual guidance but rather discuss
the general rules for the following areas:

  • Dual citizenship
  • Preparation for moving from US to Sweden
    from a Swedish perspective.
  • Inheritance
  • Properties and other assets in Sweden and the responsibility of
    the individual.

The cost for this meeting is $10 for SACC members and $15
for non members. Space is limited, so please RSVP to
and send in a check to the Consulate 5350 Carillon Point, Kirkland by February 24.
