The procurement includes services within IT Applications and can be utilised by the Swedish Tax Agency, the Enforcement Authority, the Election Authority, the Swedish E-Identification Board, the Council on Advanced Tax Rulings, and the Taxation of Research Workers Board.

In the contract award decision HiQ has received the highest possible score within all areas by the Swedish Tax Agency.

The Court of Appeal has now decided to reject first appeal and not to grant a trial permit of the second appeal. The Contract can now be endorsed as soon as the standstill period has expired.

“The Swedish Tax Agency, together with the other authorities, is one of HiQ’s most important clients. It has been a long process since we won the procurement in September 2019 – and now we are looking forward to continuing assit the Tax Agency become even more efficient and to develop even smarter services. This is a win for both Sweden and all its tax payers”, says Erik Ridman, Director of Communications at HiQ.
