The option to deliver VAT returns on paper is no longer available with effect from January 1 2016. This imply that the VAT return for term 1 (January and February) which is due April 10 must be submittet electronically through Altinn.no
Who can submit VAT returns?
In order to submit VAT returns in Altinn you must have a person with a Norwegian personal number or a D-number in Norway to access Altinn. The general manager and the chairman of the board are granted access to submit VAT returns electronically. It is also possible to delegate the right to submit the VAT returns to e.g. an accountant.
First time log on is not that easy
The first time you log on to Altinn it is required that you are able to identify yourself. If you are a foreigner a pin-letter is sent to your home address. This pin is activated after you have verified your ID to Altinn. This implies that you must have e.g. a notorious publicus verifying your ID papers.
Thus, I recommend that you start the process now in order to be able to deliver your VAT return in due time.
Jeg heter Marit Barth, og er partner/advokat i Advokatfirmaet PwC. Jeg har jobbet med mva for næringsdrivende og selskaper siden 2003 og har lyst til å blogge om mine erfaringer på dette området. Mitt mål er å gi deg informasjon, analyser og nyheter på en annen måte enn det du får gjennom nyhetsbrev og annen faginformasjon. Jeg håper også at jeg noen ganger klarer å inspirere deg, utfordre deg og kanskje provosere deg litt. Hvis du har synspunkter, innspill, kommentarer eller spørsmål til noe du leser eller ser her på bloggen blir jeg glad for å høre fra deg.
Velkommen til #norgesskatteblogg.
My name is Marit Barth and I am a lawyer and partner in PwC Tax & Legal Services. I have been working with VAT since 2003, and I would like to blog about my experiences in this area. My goal is to give you information, analyses and news in a different way than you get through newsletters. I also hope that I sometimes manage to inspire you. If you have input, comments or questions to something you read, I will be happy to hear from you.
