The international tax team in Magnus Legal holds extensive knowledge of Norwegian taxation. We regularly assist foreign companies establishing a business structure in Norway, and offer an assessment of the tax liability for both the companies and their employees.

VAT in Norway

Foreign businesses that start up business activities liable to VAT in Norway must calculate and pay VAT in the same way as Norwegian businesses.  The VAT is reported on VAT returns that normally are filed every other month.

Work in Norway

Magnus Legal is the professional partner that assists both foreign employers and expatriates with Norwegian compliance obligations. We also solve legal issues related to Norwegian tax and social security contribution.

For foreign employers, it could be hard to relate to Norwegian labour law, including understanding the mandatory system for holiday and holiday pay, and complying with strict regulations of working hours and rules regarding termination of employment.

Working as an expat leads to obligations to Norway. Magnus Legal has considerable experience with legal assistance for expats, and provides many services for expats working in Norway.

Individual tax return

Everyone who works in Norway or on the Norwegian continental shelf is liable to submit a tax return to the Norwegian Tax Administration. The tax return provides an overview of your income, deductions, wealth and debts.

Public procurement

The annual value of Norwegian public procurement is estimated at NOK 480 billion.

We know these rules and can help your company through the bidding process.
