Magnus Legal has considerable experience with legal assistance for expats, and provides many services for expats working in Norway.
Expats are persons taking up residency in another country. Working as an expat leads to obligations to Norway. Residence permits and visa may be essential prior to your stay, and during your stay there are many other legal commitments to consider. This includes obtaining a Norwegian ID-number (“personnummer” or “d-nummer”), and obtaining a tax deduction card.
Employees staying temporarily in Norway and who work for a foreign employer, and employees who work on the Norwegian continental shelf and who live abroad, must have a tax deduction card from the Central Office – Foreign Tax Affairs (COFTA).
Tax liability to Norway may arise either based on tax residency or on the basis of working in Norway. Expats who have capital or income, both taxable and non-taxable, and who are liable for tax pursuant to the Taxation Act must submit a tax return.
From experience, we recommend that you seek professional advice before filing the annual tax return if you have only worked in Norway for part of the year or have any other global tax aspects.
