Complying with Norwegian tax, immigration and reporting rules can be a challenge for foreign companies with cross border activity in Norway. We have developed an information pamphlet where you will find an overview of the obligations in respect of having employees in Norway. Did you know that reporting obligations apply as soon as you have employees present in Norway who are not only on a short business trip? Actually the obligations apply to the same extent as if you were to establish the business permanently in Norway.

Our experience is that the tax authorities does follow up on foreign companies having activity in Norway. This is amongst others due to an increase in cross boarder information exchange between countries and also the cooperation between Norwegian authorities. More and more foreign companies will therefore receive a claim for reporting in Norway by the authorities.

Our experience tells us that this is less time-consuming, less expensive and easier internally when the reporting is handled in a timely manner.

I hope you find time to have a look at our pamphlet and that you find the information relevant for you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you wish to discuss.

Jeg heter Torbjørn Stokke og jobber som advokat i Advokatfirmaet PwC. Jeg jobber med de fleste spørsmål som dukker opp i forbindelse med internasjonal mobilitet av arbeidskraft. Det er likevel ikke til å komme bort fra at jeg engasjerer meg aller mest i internasjonal personbeskatning. Jeg har også en god del erfaring innenfor nasjonal personbeskatning og kan være en god diskusjonspartner også her.

Jeg startet min arbeidskarriere med personbeskatning i Skattedirektoratet. Senere har jeg fått erfaring fra to andre revisjons- og rådgivningsfirmaer samt som intern skatterådgiver i Aibel, før jeg fant veien til PwC.

Enkelte ganger så dukker det opp spørsmål, nye lovregler, endret praktisering, rettssaker eller enkeltvedtak som virkelig engasjerer. Når jeg blir engasjert så har jeg et formidlingsbehov. Du kan være trygg på at kommer det et blogginnlegg fra meg, så står det en engasjert skatteadvokat bak!
