Doing business in Norway - how to comply with Norwegian tax rules..?!

577A7558_banner.jpg ‹ Back to the articles

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.

Ståle Wangen

Jeg heter Ståle Wangen og jobber som advokat i Advokatfirmaet PwC. Jeg leder PwC Norges avdeling for internasjonal skatt og jobber til daglig med å bistå norske og utenlandske virksomheter med skatteplanlegging, strukturering av kjøp og salg av virksomheter, internprising og andre spørsmål knyttet til bedriftsbeskatning i Norge og utlandet. Jeg har mer enn 20 års erfaring med skatterådgivning.

Skatteverdenen blir stadig mer internasjonal og kompleks. Ved kjøp og salg av varer og tjenester utenfor Norges grenser må norske virksomheter håndtere skatteregler både i utlandet og i Norge. PwC har kontorer i de fleste land og vi har et unikt nettverk av skatterådgivere som kan bistå med spesialkompetanse på de fleste områder. Jeg håper mine innspill kan gi deg en alternativ innfallsvinkel til ulike temaer enn hva tradisjonelle nyhetsbrev gir.

Ta gjerne kontakt dersom du har spørsmål, kommentarer eller innspill.
