e) a workshop, and
f) a mine, an oil or gas well, a quarry or any other place of extraction of natural resources.

a) the use of facilities solely for the purpose of storage, display or delivery of goods or merchandise belonging to the enterprise;
b) the maintenance of a stock of goods or merchandise belonging to the enterprise solely for the purpose of storage, display or delivery;

5. Paragraph 4 shall not apply to a fixed place of business that is used or maintained by an enterprise if the same enterprise or a closely related enterprise carries on business activities at the same place or at another place in the same Contracting State and
a) that place or other place constitutes a permanent establishment for the enterprise or the closely related enterprise under the provisions of this Article, or
b) the overall activity resulting from the combination of the activities carried on by the two enterprises at the same place, or by the same enterprise or closely related enterprises at the two places, is not of a preparatory or auxiliary character,
provided that the business activities carried on by the two enterprises at the same place, or by the same enterprise or closely related enterprises at the two places, constitute complementary functions that are part of a cohesive business operation.
6. Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraphs 1 and 2, where a person – other than an agent of an independent status to whom paragraph 7 applies – is acting on behalf of an enterprise and has, and habitually exercises, in a Contracting State an authority to conclude contracts in the name of the enterprise, that enterprise shall be deemed to have a permanent establishment in that State in respect of any activities which that person undertakes for the enterprise, unless the activities of such person are limited to those mentioned in paragraph 4 which, if exercised through a fixed place of business, would not make this fixed place of business a permanent establishment under the provisions of that paragraph.
7. An enterprise shall not be deemed to have a permanent establishment in a Contracting State merely because it carries on business in that State through a broker, general commission agent or any other agent of an independent status, provided that such persons are acting in the ordinary course of their business. However, when the activities of such an agent are devoted wholly or almost wholly on behalf of that enterprise, and conditions are made or imposed between that enterprise and the agent in their commercial and financial relations which differ from those which would have been made between independent enterprises, he will not be considered an agent of an independent status within the meaning of this paragraph.
8. The fact that a company which is a resident of a Contracting State controls or is controlled by a company which is a resident of the other Contracting State, or which carries on business in that other State (whether through a permanent establishment or otherwise), shall not of itself constitute either company a permanent establishment of the other.
9. For the purposes of this Article, an enterprise is closely related to an enterprise if, based on all the relevant facts and circumstances, one has control of the other or both are under the control of the same persons or enterprises. In any case, an enterprise shall be considered to be closely related to an enterprise if one possesses directly or indirectly more than 50 per cent of the beneficial interest in the other (or, in the case of a company, more than 50 per cent of the aggregate vote and value of the company’s shares or of the beneficial equity interest in the company) or if another person or enterprise possesses directly or indirectly more than 50 per cent of the beneficial interest (or, in the case of a company, more than 50 per cent of the aggregate vote and value of the company’s shares or of the beneficial equity interest in the company) in the two enterprises.

4. The provisions of paragraphs 1 and 3 shall also apply to the income from immovable property of an enterprise.
Article 7 
Business profits 
1. Profits of an enterprise of a Contracting State shall be taxable only in that State unless the enterprise carries on business in the other Contracting State through a permanent establishment situated therein. If the enterprise carries on business as aforesaid, the profits that are attributable to the permanent establishment in accordance with the provisions of paragraph 2 may be taxed in that other State.
2. For the purposes of this Article and Article 22, the profits that are attributable in each Contracting State to the permanent establishment referred to in paragraph 1 are the profits it might be expected to make, in particular in its dealings with other parts of the enterprise, if it were a separate and independent enterprise engaged in the same or similar activities under the same or similar conditions, taking into account the functions performed, assets used and risks assumed by the enterprise through the permanent establishment and through the other parts of the enterprise.
3. Where, in accordance with paragraph 2, a Contracting State adjusts the profits that are attributable to a permanent establishment of an enterprise of one of the Contracting States and taxes accordingly profits of the enterprise that have been charged to tax in the other State, the other Contracting State shall, to the extent necessary to eliminate double taxation on these profits, make an appropriate adjustment if it agrees with the adjustment made by the first-mentioned State; if the other Contracting State does not so agree, the Contracting States shall endeavour to eliminate any double taxation resulting therefrom by mutual agreement.
4. Where profits include items of income which are dealt with separately in other Articles of this Convention, then the provisions of those Articles shall not be affected by the provisions of this Article.
Article 8 
International shipping and air transport 
1. Profits of an enterprise of a Contracting State from the operation of ships or aircraft in international traffic shall be taxable only in that State.

Article 9 
Associated enterprises 
1. Where
a) an enterprise of a Contracting State participates directly or indirectly in the management, control or capital of an enterprise of the other Contracting State, or
b) the same persons participate directly or indirectly in the management, control or capital of an enterprise of a Contracting State and an enterprise of the other Contracting State,
and in either case conditions are made or imposed between the two enterprises in their commercial or financial relations which differ from those which would be made between independent enterprises, then any profits which would, but for those conditions, have accrued to one of the enterprises, but, by reason of those conditions, have not so accrued, may be included in the profits of that enterprise and taxed accordingly.
2. Where a Contracting State includes in the profits of an enterprise of that State – and taxes accordingly – profits on which an enterprise of the other Contracting State has been charged to tax in that other State and the profits so included are profits which would have accrued to the enterprise of the first-mentioned State if the conditions made between the two enterprises had been those which would have been made between independent enterprises, then that other State shall make an appropriate adjustment to the amount of the tax charged therein on those profits if that other State considers the adjustment justified. In determining such adjustment, due regard shall be had to the other provisions of this Convention and the competent authorities of the Contracting States shall if necessary consult each other.
Article 10 
Dividends 
1. Dividends paid by a company which is a resident of a Contracting State to a resident of the other Contracting State may be taxed in that other State.
2. However, dividends paid by a company which is a resident of a Contracting State may also be taxed in that State according to the laws of that State, but if the beneficial owner of the dividends is a resident of the other Contracting State, the tax so charged shall not exceed:
a) 5 per cent of the gross amount of the dividends if the beneficial owner is a company which holds directly at least 25 per cent of the capital or controls directly at least 25 per cent of the voting power of the company paying the dividends throughout a 365 day period that includes the day of the payment of the dividend (for the purpose of computing that period, no account shall be taken of changes of ownership that would directly result from a corporate reorganisation, such as a merger or divisive reorganisation, of the company that holds the shares or that pays the dividend);
b) 15 per cent of the gross amount of the dividends in all other cases.
This paragraph shall not affect the taxation of the company in respect of the profits out of which the dividends are paid.
3. The term “dividends” as used in this Article means income from shares or other rights, not being debt-claims, participating in profits, as well as income from other corporate rights which is subjected to the same taxation treatment as income from shares by the laws of the State of which the company making the distribution is a resident.
4. The provisions of paragraphs 1 and 2 shall not apply if the beneficial owner of the dividends, being a resident of a Contracting State, carries on business in the other Contracting State of which the company paying the dividends is a resident through a permanent establishment situated therein and the holding in respect of which the dividends are paid is effectively connected with such permanent establishment. In such case the provisions of Article 7 shall apply.
5. Where a company which is a resident of a Contracting State derives profits or income from the other Contracting State, that other State may not impose any tax on the dividends paid by the company, except insofar as such dividends are paid to a resident of that other State or insofar as the holding in respect of which the dividends are paid is effectively connected with a permanent establishment situated in that other State, nor subject the company’s undistributed profits to a tax on the company’s undistributed profits, even if the dividends paid or the undistributed profits consist wholly or partly of profits or income arising in such other State.
Article 11 
Interest 
1. Interest arising in a Contracting State and paid to a resident of the other Contracting State may be taxed in that other State.

3. Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraph 2 interest, mentioned in paragraph 1, shall be taxable only in the Contracting State of which the beneficial owner of the interest is a resident if one of the following requirements is fulfilled:
a) the payer or the recipient of the interest is the Contracting State itself, a governmental body or agency, a political subdivision or a local authority thereof or the Central Bank of a Contracting State;
b) the interest is paid with respect to a loan made, guaranteed or insured, or a credit extended, guaranteed or insured by an institution of the other Contacting State with the objective to promote exports or development;
c) the interest is paid in respect of an indebtedness arising on the sale on credit of any merchandise or industrial, commercial or scientific equipment to an enterprise of the other Contracting State.
4. The term “interest” as used in this Article means income from debt-claims of every kind, whether or not secured by mortgage and whether or not carrying a right to participate in the debtor’s profits, and in particular, income from government securities and income from bonds or debentures, including premiums and prizes attaching to such securities, bonds or debentures. Penalty charges for late payment shall not be regarded as interest for the purpose of this Article.
5. The provisions of paragraphs 1, 2 and 3 shall not apply if the beneficial owner of the interest, being a resident of a Contracting State, carries on business in the other Contracting State in which the interest arises through a permanent establishment situated therein and the debt-claim in respect of which the interest is paid is effectively connected with such permanent establishment. In such case the provisions of Article 7 shall apply.
6. Interest shall be deemed to arise in a Contracting State when the payer is a resident of that State. Where, however, the person paying the interest, whether he is a resident of a Contracting State or not, has in a Contracting State a permanent establishment in connection with which the indebtedness on which the interest is paid was incurred, and such interest is borne by such permanent establishment, then such interest shall be deemed to arise in the State in which the permanent establishment is situated.
7. Where, by reason of a special relationship between the payer and the beneficial owner or between both of them and some other person, the amount of the interest, having regard to the debt-claim for which it is paid, exceeds the amount which would have been agreed upon by the payer and the beneficial owner in the absence of such relationship, the provisions of this Article shall apply only to the last-mentioned amount. In such case, the excess part of the payments shall remain taxable according to the laws of each Contracting State, due regard being had to the other provisions of this Convention.
Article 12 
Royalties 
1. Royalties arising in a Contracting State and paid to a resident of the other Contracting State may be taxed in that other State.
2. However, royalties arising in a Contracting State may also be taxed in that State according to the laws of that State, but if the beneficial owner of the royalties is a resident of the other Contracting State, the tax so charged shall not exceed 5 per cent of the gross amount of the royalties.
3. The term “royalties” as used in this Article means payments of any kind received as a consideration for the use of, or the right to use, any copyright of literary, artistic or scientific work including cinematograph films, any patent, trade mark, design or model, plan, secret formula or process, or for information concerning industrial, commercial or scientific experience.
4. The provisions of paragraphs 1 and 2 shall not apply if the beneficial owner of the royalties, being a resident of a Contracting State, carries on business in the other Contracting State in which the royalties arise through a permanent establishment situated therein and the right or property in respect of which the royalties are paid is effectively connected with such permanent establishment. In such case the provisions of Article 7 shall apply.
5. Royalties shall be deemed to arise in a Contracting State when the payer is a resident of that State. Where, however, the person paying the royalties, whether he is a resident of a Contracting State or not, has in a Contracting State a permanent establishment in connection with which the liability to pay the royalties was incurred, and such royalties are borne by such permanent establishment, then such royalties shall be deemed to arise in the State in which the permanent establishment is situated.
6. Where, by reason of a special relationship between the payer and the beneficial owner or between both of them and some other person, the amount of the royalties, having regard to the use, right or information for which they are paid, exceeds the amount which would have been agreed upon by the payer and the beneficial owner in the absence of such relationship, the provisions of this Article shall apply only to the last-mentioned amount. In such case, the excess part of the payments shall remain taxable according to the laws of each Contracting State, due regard being had to the other provisions of this Convention.

Article 22 
Elimination of double taxation 
Double taxation shall be eliminated as follows:
1. In Slovenia:
a) Where a resident of Slovenia derives income or owns capital which, in accordance with the provisions of this Convention, may be taxed in Sweden, Slovenia shall allow:
(i) as deduction from the tax on the income of that resident, an amount equal to the income tax paid in Sweden;
(ii) as a deduction from the tax on the capital of that resident, an amount equal to the capital tax paid in Sweden.
Such deduction in either case shall not, however, exceed that part of the income tax or capital tax, as computed before the deduction is given, which is attributable, as the case may be, to the income or the capital which may be taxed in Sweden.
b) Where in accordance with any provision of the Convention income derived or capital owned by a resident of Slovenia is exempt from tax in Slovenia, Slovenia may nevertheless, in calculating the amount of tax on the remaining income or capital of such resident, take into account the exempted income or capital.
2. In Sweden:
a) Where a resident of Sweden derives income which under the laws of Slovenia and in accordance with the provisions of this Convention may be taxed in Slovenia, Sweden shall allow – subject to the provisions of the laws of Sweden concerning credit for foreign tax (as they may be amended from time to time without changing the general principle hereof) – as a deduction from the tax on such income, an amount equal to the Slovenian tax paid in respect of such income.
b) Where a resident of Sweden derives income which, in accordance with the provisions of this Convention, shall be taxable only in Slovenia, Sweden may, when determining the graduated rate of Swedish tax, take into account the income which shall be taxable only in Slovenia.
c) Notwithstanding the provisions of sub-paragraph a) of this paragraph, dividends paid by a company which is a resident of Slovenia to a company which is a resident of Sweden shall be exempt from Swedish tax according to the provisions of Swedish law governing the exemption of tax on dividends paid to Swedish companies by companies abroad.
Article 23 
Non-discrimination 
1. Nationals of a Contracting State shall not be subjected in the other Contracting State to any taxation or any requirement connected therewith, which is other or more burdensome than the taxation and connected requirements to which nationals of that other State in the same circumstances, in particular with respect to residence, are or may be subjected. This provision shall, notwithstanding the provisions of Article 1, also apply to persons who are not residents of one or both of the Contracting States.
2. The taxation on a permanent establishment which an enterprise of a Contracting State has in the other Contracting State shall not be less favourably levied in that other State than the taxation levied on enterprises of that other State carrying on the same activities. This provision shall not be construed as obliging a Contracting State to grant to residents of the other Contracting State any personal allowances, reliefs and reductions for taxation purposes on account of civil status or family responsibilities which it grants to its own residents.
3. Except where the provisions of paragraph 1 of Article 9, paragraph 7 of Article 11, or paragraph 6 of Article 12, apply, interest, royalties and other disbursements paid by an enterprise of a Contracting State to a resident of the other Contracting State shall, for the purpose of determining the taxable profits of such enterprise, be deductible under the same conditions as if they had been paid to a resident of the first-mentioned State. Similarly, any debts of an enterprise of a Contracting State to a resident of the other Contracting State shall, for the purpose of determining the taxable capital of such enterprise, be deductible under the same conditions as if they had been contracted to a resident of the first-mentioned State.
4. Enterprises of a Contracting State, the capital of which is wholly or partly owned or controlled, directly or indirectly, by one or more residents of the other Contracting State, shall not be subjected in the first-mentioned State to any taxation or any requirement connected therewith which is other or more burdensome than the taxation and connected requirements to which other similar enterprises of the first-mentioned State are or may be subjected.
5. The provisions of this Article shall, notwithstanding the provisions of Article 2, apply to taxes of every kind and description.
Article 24 
Mutual agreement procedure 
1. Where a person considers that the actions of one or both of the Contracting States result or will result for him in taxation not in accordance with the provisions of this Convention, he may, irrespective of the remedies provided by the domestic law of those States, present his case to the competent authority of the Contracting State of which he is a resident or, if his case comes under paragraph 1 of Article 23, to that of the Contracting State of which he is a national. The case must be presented within three years from the first notification of the action resulting in taxation not in accordance with the provisions of the Convention.
2. The competent authority shall endeavour, if the objection appears to it to be justified and if it is not itself able to arrive at a satisfactory solution, to resolve the case by mutual agreement with the competent authority of the other Contracting State, with a view to the avoidance of taxation which is not in accordance with the Convention. Any agreement reached shall be implemented notwithstanding any time limits in the domestic law of the Contracting States.
3. The competent authorities of the Contracting States shall endeavour to resolve by mutual agreement any difficulties or doubts arising as to the interpretation or application of the Convention. They may also consult together for the elimination of double taxation in cases not provided for in the Convention.
4. The competent authorities of the Contracting States may communicate with each other directly for the purpose of reaching an agreement in the sense of the preceding paragraphs.
Article 25 
Exchange of information 
1. The competent authorities of the Contracting States shall exchange such information as is foreseeably relevant for carrying out the provisions of this Convention or to the administration or enforcement of the domestic laws concerning taxes of every kind and description imposed on behalf of the Contracting States, or of their political subdivisions or local authorities, insofar as the taxation thereunder is not contrary to the Convention. The exchange of information is not restricted by Articles 1 and 2.
2. Any information received under paragraph 1 by a Contracting State shall be treated as secret in the same manner as information obtained under the domestic laws of that State and shall be disclosed only to persons or authorities (including courts and administrative bodies) concerned with the assessment or collection of, the enforcement or prosecution in respect of, the determination of appeals in relation to the taxes referred to in paragraph 1, or the oversight of the above. Such persons or authorities shall use the information only for such purposes. They may disclose the information in public court proceedings or in judicial decisions. Notwithstanding the foregoing, information received by a Contracting State may be used for other purposes when such information may be used for such other purposes under the laws of both States and the competent authority of the supplying State authorises such use.
3. In no case shall the provisions of paragraphs 1 and 2 be construed so as to impose on a Contracting State the obligation:
a) to carry out administrative measures at variance with the laws and administrative practice of that or of the other Contracting State;
b) to supply information which is not obtainable under the laws or in the normal course of the administration of that or of the other Contracting State;
c) to supply information which would disclose any trade, business, industrial, commercial or professional secret or trade process, or information, the disclosure of which would be contrary to public policy (ordre public).
4. If information is requested by a Contracting State in accordance with this Article, the other Contracting State shall use its information gathering measures to obtain the requested information, even though that other State may not need such information for its own tax purposes. The obligation contained in the preceding sentence is subject to the limitations of paragraph 3 but in no case shall such limitations be construed to permit a Contracting State to decline to supply information solely because it has no domestic interest in such information.
5. In no case shall the provisions of paragraph 3 be construed to permit a Contracting State to decline to supply information solely because the information is held by a bank, other financial institution, nominee or person acting in an agency or a fiduciary capacity or because it relates to ownership interests in a person.
Article 26 
Members of diplomatic missions and consular posts 
Nothing in this Convention shall affect the fiscal privileges of members of diplomatic missions or consular posts under the general rules of international law or under the provisions of special agreements.
Article 27 
Limitation on benefits 
1. Notwithstanding the other provisions of this Convention, a benefit under this Convention shall not be granted in respect of an item of income or capital if it is reasonable to conclude, having regard to all relevant facts and circumstances, that obtaining that benefit was one of the principal purposes of any arrangement or transaction that resulted directly or indirectly in that benefit, unless it is established that granting that benefit in these circumstances would be in accordance with the object and purpose of the relevant provisions of this Convention.
2. Notwithstanding the other provisions of this Convention, where
a) a company that is a resident of a Contracting State derives its income primarily from other States
(i) from activities such as banking, shipping, financing or insurance or
(ii) from being the headquarters, co-ordination centre or similar entity providing administrative services or other support to a group of companies which carry on business primarily in other States; and
b) such income would bear a significantly lower tax under the laws of that State than income from similar activities carried out within that State or from being the headquarters, co-ordination centre or similar entity providing administrative services or other support to a group of companies which carry on business in that State, as the case may be,
any provisions of this Convention conferring an exemption or a reduction of tax shall not apply to the income of such company and to the dividends paid by such company.
Article 28 
Entry into force 
1. Each of the Contracting States shall notify the other in writing, through diplomatic channels, of the completion of the procedures required by its law for the entry into force of this Convention.
2. The Convention shall enter into force on the thirtieth day after the receipt of the later of these notifications and shall thereupon have effect:
a) in respect of taxes withheld at source, for amounts paid or credited on or after the first day of January of the calendar year next following the date on which the Convention enters into force;
b) in respect of other taxes on income, and taxes on capital, on taxes chargeable for any tax year beginning on or after the first day of January of the calendar year next following the date on which the Convention enters into force.
3. Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraph 2, the provisions of Article 24 (Mutual agreement procedure) and Article 25 (Exchange of information) shall have effect from the date of entry into force of this Convention, without regard to the taxable period to which the matter relates.
4. The Convention between the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia and the Kingdom of Sweden for the avoidance of double taxation with respect to taxes on income and capital, signed at Stockholm on 18th June 1980 (“the prior Convention”), shall cease to have effect between Slovenia and Sweden with respect to any tax on the date upon which this Convention has effect with respect to that tax in accordance with the provisions of paragraph 2.
5. Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraphs 2 and 4 and the provisions of Article 17, where, immediately before the entry into force of this Convention, an individual was in receipt of payments falling within paragraphs 1, 2 and 3 of Article 18 of the prior Convention, that individual may make an election that the provisions of that Article, and not the provisions of Article 17 of this Convention, shall continue to apply to those payments. That election shall have effect for the year in which it is made and for subsequent years unless revoked by the individual. Where an election has been so revoked, no further election under this paragraph may be made.
Article 29 
Termination 
This Convention shall remain in force until terminated by a Contracting State. Either Contracting State may terminate the Convention, through diplomatic channels, by giving written notice of termination at least six months before the end of any calendar year. In such case, the Convention shall cease to have effect:
a) in respect of taxes withheld at source, for amounts paid or credited on or after the first day of January of the calendar year next following the end of the six-month period;
b) in respect of other taxes on income, and taxes on capital, on taxes chargeable for any tax year beginning on or after the first day of January of the calendar year next following the end of the six-month period.

Če podjetje posluje, kakor je prej omenjeno, se lahko dobiček, ki se pripiše stalni poslovni enoti v skladu z določbami drugega odstavka, obdavči v tej drugi državi.
2. Za namene tega člena in 22. člena je dobiček, ki se v vsaki državi pogodbenici pripiše stalni poslovni enoti iz prvega odstavka, dobiček, za katerega bi se lahko pričakovalo, da bi ga imela, še posebej pri poslovanju z drugimi deli podjetja, če bi bila ločeno in neodvisno podjetje, ki opravlja enake ali podobne dejavnosti pod enakimi ali podobnimi pogoji, ob upoštevanju opravljenih nalog, uporabljenih sredstev in tveganj, ki jih prevzame podjetje prek stalne poslovne enote in drugih delov podjetja.
3. Kadar v skladu z drugim odstavkom država pogodbenica prilagodi dobiček, ki se pripiše stalni poslovni enoti podjetja ene od držav pogodbenic, in torej obdavči dobiček podjetja, ki je bil obdavčen v drugi državi, druga država pogodbenica opravi ustrezno prilagoditev, kolikor je potrebno za odpravo dvojnega obdavčevanja tega dobička, če se strinja s prilagoditvijo, ki jo opravi prva omenjena država; če se druga država pogodbenica s tem ne strinja, si državi pogodbenici prizadevata s skupnim dogovorom odpraviti kakršno koli dvojno obdavčenje, ki iz tega izhaja.

2. Kadar država pogodbenica v dobiček podjetja te države vključuje – in ustrezno obdavči – dobiček, za katerega je bilo že obdavčeno podjetje druge države pogodbenice v tej drugi državi, in je tako vključeni dobiček tisti dobiček, ki bi prirasel podjetju prve omenjene države, če bi bili pogoji, vzpostavljeni med podjetjema, taki, kakor bi jih vzpostavili neodvisni podjetji, ta druga država ustrezno prilagodi znesek davka, ki se v njej obračuna od tega dobička, če meni, da je prilagoditev upravičena. Pri določanju take prilagoditve je treba upoštevati druge določbe te konvencije, pristojna organa držav pogodbenic pa se po potrebi med seboj posvetujeta.

b) 15 odstotkov bruto zneska dividend v vseh drugih primerih.
Ta odstavek ne vpliva na obdavčenje družbe v zvezi z dobičkom, iz katerega se plačajo dividende.

Določbe prvega in drugega odstavka se ne uporabljajo, če upravičeni lastnik dividend, ki je rezident države pogodbenice, posluje v drugi državi pogodbenici, katere rezident je družba, ki dividende plačuje, prek stalne poslovne enote v njej in je delež, v zvezi s katerim se dividende plačajo, dejansko povezan s tako stalno poslovno enoto. V tem primeru se uporabljajo določbe 7. člena.
5. Kadar dobiček ali dohodek družbe, ki je rezident države pogodbenice, izhaja iz druge države pogodbenice, ta druga država ne sme uvesti nobenega davka na dividende, ki jih plača družba, razen če se te dividende plačajo rezidentu te druge države ali če je delež, v zvezi s katerim se dividende plačajo, dejansko povezan s stalno poslovno enoto v tej drugi državi; niti ne sme uvesti davka od nerazdeljenega dobička družbe na nerazdeljeni dobiček družbe, tudi če so plačane dividende ali nerazdeljeni dobiček v celoti ali delno sestavljeni iz dobička ali dohodka, ki nastane v tej drugi državi.

V tem primeru se uporabljajo določbe 7. člena.

3. Pristojna organa držav pogodbenic si prizadevata s skupnim dogovorom rešiti katere koli težave ali odpraviti dvome, ki nastanejo pri razlagi ali uporabi konvencije. Poleg tega se lahko posvetujeta o odpravi dvojnega obdavčevanja v primerih, ki jih konvencija ne predvideva.
4. Da bi pristojna organa držav pogodbenic dosegla dogovor v skladu s prejšnjimi odstavki, se lahko dogovarjata neposredno.

Izmenjava informacij 
1. Pristojna organa držav pogodbenic si izmenjavata informacije, ki so predvidoma pomembne za izvajanje določb te konvencije ali za izvajanje ali uveljavljanje domače zakonodaje glede davkov vseh vrst in opisov, ki se uvedejo v imenu držav pogodbenic ali njunih političnih enot ali lokalnih oblasti, če obdavčevanje na njeni podlagi ni v nasprotju s konvencijo. Izmenjava informacij ni omejena s 1. in 2. členom.
2. Vsaka informacija, ki jo država pogodbenica prejme na podlagi prvega odstavka, se obravnava kot tajnost enako kakor informacije, pridobljene po domači zakonodaji te države, in se razkrije samo osebam ali organom (vključno s sodišči in upravnimi organi), udeleženim pri odmeri ali pobiranju davkov, izterjavi ali pregonu ali pri odločanju o pritožbah glede davkov iz prvega odstavka ali pri nadzoru nad omenjenim. Te osebe ali organi uporabljajo informacije samo v te namene. Informacije lahko razkrijejo v javnih sodnih postopkih ali sodnih odločbah. Ne glede na to se lahko informacija, ki jo pridobi država pogodbenica, uporablja za druge namene, kadar se v take druge namene lahko uporablja po zakonodaji obeh držav in če pristojni organ države dajalke tako uporabo dovoli.
3. Določbe prvega in drugega odstavka se v nobenem primeru ne razlagajo, kakor da nalagajo državi pogodbenici obveznost, da:
a) izvaja upravne ukrepe, ki niso v skladu z zakonodajo in upravno prakso te ali druge države pogodbenice;
b) predloži informacije, ki jih ni mogoče dobiti na podlagi zakonodaje ali po običajni upravni poti te ali druge države pogodbenice;
c) predloži informacije, ki bi razkrile kakršno koli trgovinsko, poslovno, industrijsko, komercialno ali poklicno skrivnost ali trgovinski postopek, ali informacije, katerih razkritje bi bilo v nasprotju z javnim redom.
4. Če država pogodbenica zahteva informacije v skladu s tem členom, druga država pogodbenica sprejme ukrepe za pridobitev zahtevanih informacij, tudi če jih ta druga država morda ne potrebuje za svoje davčne namene. Za obveznost iz prejšnjega stavka veljajo omejitve iz tretjega odstavka, toda v nobenem primeru se take omejitve ne razlagajo tako, kakor da država pogodbenica lahko zavrne predložitev informacij samo zato, ker sama zanje nima interesa.
5. V nobenem primeru se določbe tretjega odstavka ne razlagajo tako, kakor da država pogodbenica lahko zavrne predložitev informacij samo zato, ker jih hrani banka, druga finančna ustanova, pooblaščenec ali oseba, ki deluje kot zastopnik ali fiduciar, ali zato, ker so povezane z lastniškimi deleži v neki osebi.

Člani diplomatskih predstavništev in konzulatov

2. Ne glede na druge določbe te konvencije se, kadar:
a) družba, ki je rezident države pogodbenice, svoj dohodek dosega predvsem v drugih državah
(i) iz dejavnosti, kot so bančništvo, ladijski prevozi, financiranje ali zavarovanje, ali
(ii) kot glavni sedež, koordinacijski center ali podobni subjekt, ki zagotavlja administrativne storitve ali drugo podporo skupini družb, ki poslujejo predvsem v drugih državah, in
b) bi bil tak dohodek po zakonodaji te države bistveno manj obdavčen kot dohodek iz podobnih dejavnosti, ki se izvajajo v tej državi, ali dohodek glavnega sedeža, koordinacijskega centra ali podobnega subjekta, ki zagotavlja administrativne storitve ali drugo podporo skupini družb, ki poslujejo v tej državi, odvisno od primera,
katere koli določbe te konvencije, ki omogočajo oprostitev ali znižanje davka ne uporabljajo za dohodek take družbe in za dividende, ki jih plača taka družba.

5. Ne glede na določbe drugega in četrtega odstavka in določbe 17. člena, kadar je posameznik tik pred začetkom veljavnosti te konvencije prejemal plačila, ki spadajo v prvi, drugi in tretji odstavek 18. člena prejšnje konvencije, ta posameznik lahko izbere, da se za ta plačila še naprej uporabljajo določbe tistega člena in ne določbe 17. člena te konvencije. Ta izbira učinkuje za leto, v katerem je bila opravljena, in za naslednja leta, če je posameznik ne prekliče. Če je bila izbira tako preklicana, nova izbira po tem odstavku ni več mogoča.

a) v zvezi z davki, odtegnjenimi pri viru, za zneske, plačane ali pripisane prvi dan januarja v koledarskem letu po izteku šestmesečnega obdobja ali po njem;
b) v zvezi z drugimi davki od dohodka in davki od premoženja za davke, obračunane za katero koli davčno leto, ki se začne 1. januarja v koledarskem letu po izteku šestmesečnega obdobja, ali po njem.

Protokol 
Ob podpisu Konvencije med Republiko Slovenijo in Kraljevino Švedsko o odpravi dvojnega obdavčevanja v zvezi z davki od dohodka in premoženja ter preprečevanju davčnih utaj in izogibanja davkom (v nadaljnjem besedilu: "konvencija") sta se Republika Slovenija in Kraljevina Švedska sporazumeli, da so naslednje določbe sestavni del konvencije:
1. V zvezi z 2. členom:
Razume se, da če Švedska v prihodnosti uvede davek od premoženja, se za ta davek uporablja konvencija. V takem primeru se dvojno obdavčevanje odpravi kot sledi:
Kadar ima rezident Švedske v lasti premoženje, ki se v skladu z določbami konvencije lahko obdavči v Sloveniji, Švedska dovoli kot odbitek od davka od premoženja tega rezidenta znesek, ki je enak davku od premoženja, plačanemu v Sloveniji. Tak odbitek pa ne sme presegati tistega dela pred odbitkom izračunanega švedskega davka od premoženja, ki se nanaša na premoženje, ki se lahko obdavči v Sloveniji.
2. V zvezi z 8. členom:
Določbe prvega odstavka 8. člena konvencije se v zvezi z dobičkom, ki ga doseže konzorcij zračnega prometa Scandinavian Airlines System (SAS), uporabljajo samo za tisti del dobička, ki ustreza udeležbi, ki jo ima v tem konzorciju SAS Sverige AB, švedski partner v SAS.
3. V zvezi z 11. členom:
V času podpisa konvencije so institucije iz pododstavka b) tretjega odstavka 11. člena konvencije:
a) v Sloveniji: SID – Slovenska izvozna in razvojna banka,
b) v Švedski: Švedska izvoznokreditna korporacija (AB Svensk Exportkredit) in Švedska izvoznokreditna agencija (Exportkreditnämnden).
Pristojna organa držav pogodbenic se lahko dogovorita o dodatnih podobnih institucijah, ki jih zajema pododstavek b) tretjega odstavka 11. člena konvencije.
4. V zvezi s 13. členom:
Določbe tretjega odstavka 13. člena konvencije se v zvezi z dobičkom, ki ga doseže konzorcij zračnega prometa Scandinavian Airlines System (SAS), uporabljajo samo za tisti del dobička, ki ustreza udeležbi, ki jo ima v tem konzorciju SAS Sverige AB, švedski partner v SAS.
5. V zvezi z 21. členom:
Določbe tretjega odstavka 21. člena konvencije se v zvezi s premoženjem, ki ga ima v lasti konzorcij zračnega prometa Scandinavian Airlines System (SAS), uporabljajo samo za tisti del premoženja, ki ustreza udeležbi, ki jo ima v tem konzorciju SAS Sverige AB, švedski partner v SAS.
