What should Inkomstdeklaration 4 contain?

Inkomstdeklaration 4 must contain information about the company's income and financial position as well as tax adjustments. The result is reported in the form of a summary of income and expenses in the section Räkenskapsschema INK4R. The financial position is reported in the form of a summary of the company's assets, liabilities and equity in the section Räkenskapsschema INK4R. Tax adjustments are those that according to law are deducted or added to affect how much tax the company must pay and this is done in the section Skattemässiga justeringar (Tax adjustments) INK4S. The income after tax adjustments is distributed between the partners and the distribution is reported in the section Delägaruppgifter (Part owner information) INK4DU. The partner's income is then taxed in the private income tax return for each partner through N3A appendix to Inkomstdeklaration 1.
