Every year, Swedish businesses, municipalities and regions carry out transactions worth millions of kronor, both in Sweden and abroad.
Even if 99.9% of this is problem-free, the last little margin of error can lead to huge sums of money being lost.
Through in-depth analyses of the business’s capital flows, we detect risks, suggest improvements and highlight opportunities for improved profitability – as well as returning large sums of money. Our analysts are ably assisted by dedicated specialists within VAT and taxation, data processing and administration.
Our way of working is based on putting the best digital tools in the hands of the smartest, most experienced and curious analysts. This is what distinguishes us from our competitors and lays the foundation for our success – curious minds always outperform soulless algorithms.
Refero was established in 2005 with a clear idea. With experience from large international agencies, and their often impersonal and mechanical ways of working, we wanted to work in a Swedish way – honestly, personally and in close cooperation with our customers.
Lars is one of Refero’s co-founders. As our marketing expert, he specialises in persuading more organisations to see the benefits of our services. Lars is also the company’s visionary – he has a talent for seeing the bigger picture, and is passionate about Refero’s future growth.
Joakim is Refero’s other co-founder, and balances out the management equation. Joakim is Lars’ opposite in many respects. He analyses the finer details, and is an expert when it comes to system flows and their contexts.
Peter has many years of experience as an auditor, and is an expert on the municipal accounting system and VAT. He often finishes tasks before we even realised he had started, and he also has experience of working with major supermarkets and retailers, as well as banking and finance.
Every company needs a perfectionist – which is where Jenny comes in. With her genuine commitment and interest, Jenny always goes the extra mile and nothing gets past her without undergoing one last review. Jenny has previously worked for several multinational groups.
Malin has a talent for getting a lot done in a short space of time. Outside work, she’s also a professional level cyclist – the very embodiment of Refero’s trademark of putting 100 percent into everything we do. We’re lucky to have such a goal-driven, effective player on our team.
A life-loving optimist who only sees everything in a positive way. Always with a smile on his face. Is the glass half full or half empty? For Christopher it is half full and it is easy getting it filled up. Good listener but prefer to talk about everything and nothing. Golf and cars are something he can talk about for a long time.
We’re lucky to have Ronnie Peterson, probably Sweden’s leading VAT and tax expert, on our team. Ronnie has worked as Head of Tax at the power company Vattenfall and as a tax expert for the Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions. He has also been commissioned to undertake fiscal investigations for the Swedish Ministry of Finance. With more than 40 years of tax and VAT experience, Ronnie truly is an invaluable resource.
Ayla is something of a sleuth who loves nothing better than delving deep into our customers’ purchasing patterns, ensuring that she understands the intentions, identifies risks and considers whether everything is 100% correct or just 99%. Working as a Contract Controller at Refero involves acting as a filter between the customer and the analyst. In her free time, she is a mother and a yogini.
With his experience, Rune is set to create long-term business and develop communication and be present in procurement issues. His long experience in communication is a welcome element for our customers who need guidance on communication and procurement.
