Abstract [en]

With few exceptions reduced payroll taxes are analysed with regards to employment and wage effects. Our study extends the impacts to cover several possible firm outcomes using a multilevel modelling approach. Between 20-55 percent in the variation in the outcomes can be explained by municipality differences. On firm level the result follows a clear business logic. In the short run, profits and turnover increased wish later on transforms into increased wages. After seven years we find indication of impacts on investments. Thus, the support has some short-term impacts that are reduced with time and the long-term effects are questionable.
