It is easy. If you meet the conditions for RUT, you only pay 50 percent of the labor cost. You have a personal maximum ceiling for ROT and RUT of SEK 75,000 to use per year, which corresponds to a purchasing basis of SEK 150,000. If you are several adults living at the same address, you can combine your RUT deductions to get a higher joint ceiling. We give cost proposals for our services and the prices for household services are always set according to RUT, so that it will be easy for you to see what the service costs after the deduction. When you receive the invoice, we handle the administration to the Swedish Tax Agency.
It includes services such as cleaning, window cleaning, garden services, etc. Over the years, moving, more advanced gardening services, repair of white goods and IT services in the home have also become part of the RUT deduction. Most of our services are deductible, so take a look at what we can help you with.
What may be good to know is that the ROT deduction (which includes construction services and renovation) affects the space in the RUT, so if a ROT deduction has been made, the RUT deduction will be smaller. The maximum ceiling for ROT services is SEK 50,000, which means that SEK 25,000 is always reserved for RUT services. If you are unsure how much deductions you have made during the year, you can always double check with the Swedish Tax Agency.
On the Swedish Tax Agency’s website, you can see how much ROT and RUT deductions you have used. It is not a confirmation that you can use the deduction. All other conditions must be met for you to be able to take part in the ROT or RUT deduction.
Contact the Swedish Tax Agency to find out if you meet the requirements for ROT and RUT.
