Job Description

After re-inventing the way people buy in the Nordics and Germany, our ultimate goal is to do the same everywhere else and become the world’s favorite way to buy. Klarna is an dynamicorganization and new ideas are transformed into new products that are introduced in new markets at a rapid rate. Of course, this also requires an adaptive tax organization. Especially so considering the additional challenges now put in front of all multinational companies due to the results of OECD’s BEPS-project.


The Tax Team is a group of tax professionals responsible for making sure that Klarna sets and follows a Tax Strategy and Tax Management Principles. It is all about finding a balance between tax expense efficiency and tax risk while taking Klarna’s rapidly changing business operation into consideration - and doing that without ever losing sight of the importance of compliance and diligence. The key areas of the Tax Team include corporate income tax, transfer pricing, indirect tax (VAT) - also from a product perspective, as well as being a central stakeholder in strategic decisions such as group restructurings and M&As.   


Responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Lead and develop the Tax Team which today includes three tax specialists in Sweden and the US
  • Have the overall responsibility for all taxes within the Klarna Group
  • Together with your team bring the tax perspective to organizational changes and strategic investments
  • Be responsible for Klarna Group’s Tax Strategy and Tax Management Principles
  • Continuously monitor and evaluate the shifting tax climate as well as suggest and implement process changes to keep the organization compliant with new requirements

  • Are a senior tax professional having extensive (15+ years) experience of working with both Swedish and international taxation, whereof at least some years in an international company
  • Have solid understanding of tax management, and we also expect you to be skilled in tax accounting and compliance
