Tax culture on a gray market : A study of tax attitudes in the construction industry (English)
Abstract [sv]

Skatteagerande är ett ifrågasatt beteende inom byggbranschen och det finns flera tecken på att aktörerna i branschen har ett skatteundandragande beteende. Detta ses i brottförendebyggande rådets publikationer samt i skatteverkets undersökningar. Tidigare forskning visar att det existerar yrkesgrupper med skillnader i kultur där asymmetri uppstår. Detta benämns för subkultur. Det finns olika faktorer som påverkar individernas skatteagerande och skattemoral negativt. Dock påstås det även att många ändå väljer göra rätt för sig. Attityder visar individens inställning till något. Syfte med denna studie är att med undersökning av attityder finna stöd för att det finns en subkultur inom byggbranschen. Studien har en abduktiv ansats och undersöker attityder inom byggbranschen till beskattning, myndigheter, lagstiftning konkurrenters agerande samt till byggbranschens skattemoral. Undersökningen av attityder har skett genom att intervjua fyra ägare. Intervjuer kompletterades med enkäter som skickades ut till flera olika företag inom byggbranschen. Resultat visar att det finns indikationer på att det återfinns ett mönster hos respondenterna som tyder på att det finns en subkultur i byggbranschen. I detta mönstret kännetecknas aktörerna framförallt av hög medvetenhet om rådande skattefusk som därmed bidrar till att de har inget val och väljer då att bryta mot normer. Studien undersöker en liten mängd aktörer som enbart utgör en del av hela populationen i byggbranschen. Därmed bör resultatet förstärkas med mer omfattande forskning.

Abstract [en]

Tax evasion is a questionable behavior in the construction industry and there are several signs that the actors in the industry have a tax avoidance behavior. This is seen in the publications of building council's publications and in the Tax Agency's investigations. Previous research shows that there are occupational groups with differences in culture where asymmetry occurs. This is termed subculture. There are various factors that negatively affect individuals' tax behavior and tax morale. However, it is also claimed that many still choose to do the right thing. Attitudes show the individual's approach to something. The aim of this study is to find support for the existence of a subculture in the construction industry with the examination of attitudes. The study has an abductive approach and examines attitudes in the construction industry to taxation, authorities, legislation, competitors' actions and to the construction industry's tax morale. The survey of attitudes has been conducted by interviewing four business owners. Interviews were supplemented with surveys that were sent out to several different companies in the construction industry. Results show that there are indications that there is a pattern in the respondents that indicates that there is a subculture in the construction industry. In this pattern, the players are mainly characterized by high awareness of prevailing tax fraud, which thus contributes to their having no choice and then chooses to break norms. The study examines a small number of actors that form only part of the entire population in the construction industry. Thus, the results should be reinforced with more extensive research.
