Ex-ABBA star facing huge tax bill

Bjorn Ulvaeus, the songwriter and former member of hit band ABBA, has been
hit with a demand for 87m kronor (£8m) on royalties earned on songs between 1999
and 2003.

According to reports, Ulvaeus is accused of evading taxes by signing over his
royalties to offshore companies.

His lawyer Sven Rygaard said the songwriter would be appealing against the
ruling and insisted that he was within his rights to take permitted measures to
reduce his tax bill.
