Please note that calling from a mobile phone can be differentfrom calling from a local telephone. Contact your operator for further information.

VAT:  All prices in Sweden include valueadded tax called "moms". The general VAT (Continued on page 14) tax is 25 percent. One exception is hotel accommodation, which is taxed with 12 percent. Companies can be refunded the VAT by sending an applicationto the Special Tax Office, SE-771 83 LUDVIKA, Sweden, tel. +46 (0)240 870 00, fax +46 (0)240 103 40. The application forms are obtainable from the same address. Private persons can usually be refunded at their home country border.

Climate and clothing:  The normal daytime temperature at the beginning of June is 15°C to 20°C, usually sunny and dry. But there are of course no guarantees - it might rain! The spring/early summer in Sweden is usually considered the most beautiful season of the year. The nights are short and in the northern parts of the country the sun never sets. Bring good shoes and suitable clothing - the whole fair is outdoors on a forest site.
