Frågor och svar – UAB Skogran

The salary that your employees got is not according to EU-law that stipulates that a posted worker shall have minimum-wage in the country where he is working. Or as in countries like scandinavia – the minimum salary in the actual collektiv-agreement. 
I have looked deeper in two months april and may last year and found: That your company had 90 employees during april and may (public figures). That 40 0f them was working in Sweden (public figures posting registry Sweden). That your avarage-salary was in april 560 euro and in may it was 650 euro. The highest salary the workers in Sweden could have got is. In april: 7528 SEK this month, or 43,51 SEK per hour. In may 9579 kronor this month or 55,36 SEK per hour. 
Do you have some comment why Skogran pay so far below what is stipulated in EU-law Do you have some comments why Skogran violates the collective agreement, which I have understood Skogran is bound to
As we see the sources of information on which the research seems to be based are not reliable. We inform that in JSC „Skogran” end of April 2017 was 232  and end of May 2017 was 257 working persons. To be more detail – planting season in Sweden we started 7 of April with 29 planters and in May there was 43 planters. We do responsibly and confidently announce that there was and will be assured proper and safe conditions to all the workers, based on certain country legislation in which our services are provided. In Skogran determination of work terms (including salary) is based on Lithuanian Labour Code, and Laws of the Republic of Lithuania, also  specific requirements of exact country in which our worker is working, as well as EU legislation (e.g The European Parliament and the Council directive 96/71/EB) and other factors.
Your provided calculation for the planting forest in Sweden of average salary on our company on April and May 2017 are wrong (possibly because of untrusted information source). In April 2017 average salary in Sweden per person was 1614,30 euro, that is equal to 11,20 eur/h (more than double that You accorded) in May 2017 1805,45 euro or 11,34 eur/h (so, more than 1.8 times bigger that was accorded in Your calculations). Beside the salary, company covers expenses such as travelling, accommodation, provides working gear and ect.

In your broschyre Skogran presents a lot of customers in Sweden, Norway and Finland. I have spoked to most of the Swedish customers and they have never hired your firm. Do you have any comments why you use those companies name as your customer in your broschyre?
We assure that all publicly published information by our company and related to our company activities is correct. Any position of our clients and partners (though the denial of collaboration) is regarded and not commented by our company.
In Norway you have to registry in the business-registry and submit an annual report if Skogran is working more than three months in Norway. You do work more than three months. Why have you not registered Skogran in business registry and submit annual report there?
Our company is not a taxpayer in Norway, as a result there is no duty to provide annual financial report.
I have found that Skograns auditors conclusions for 2016 is that Skogran has failed to provide statutory audits of annual financial statements (information updated on 11-02-2017). (In Lithuanian: Auditoriaus išvados už 2016 m. nepateikusios įmonės, kai pagal įstatymus turi būti atliktas metinių finansinių ataskaitų auditas (informacija atnaujinta 2017-11-02).)
How come?  Why do Skogran stil submit an annual report as the company is a small company?
We affirm You that that our company submitted mandatory reports (including statutory audits of annual financial statements) according to Legal acts of the Republic of Lithuania terms and conditions. It is officially verified by State Enterprise Centre of Registers (see a link below).

You can see financial reports are submitted every year including 2016.

Do you have anything that you want to add?
