Return of grey economy jobs

The government’s 20% cut in the amount of tax that companies could deduct on ROT (home repairs) and RUT (household services) as of January this year have meant that the number of ROT jobs have fallen by 16% and companies within the home repairs sector predict that that it will continue to fall.

“We’re continually getting calls about companies that are worried. Some have had to cut staff. We’re also hearing that the number of grey economy jobs is on the increase,” says Maria Boborg Trané of the national association of SME:s (Småföretagarnas Riksförbund).
