C32. Remuneration to audit firms

The following remuneration was billed by audit firms for audits and other reviews based on applicable legislation and for advice and other assistance resulting from observations in the reviews. Remuneration was also billed for independent advice, using group auditors or other audit firms, in the fields of Tax/Law and Corporate Finance as well as other consulting services. Audit fees to other audit firms refer to subsidiaries not audited by the group auditors. Auditors are elected by the Annual General Meeting.

Deloitte AB was re-elected at the Annual General Meeting on April 8, 2015 as TeliaSonera AB’s independent auditor (group auditor) for a 1-year term. The audit of the consolidated financial statements has been carried out throughout the year since the election. No separate fee has been billed for the review of interim financial statements.
