Hi, How may I help you?

Get started with your foreign business activities in Norway

While Norway offers a secure and conducive environment for business, initiating operations here requires careful consideration and an understanding of Norwegian compliance. Various options exist for organizing your business activities. Factors such as commercial considerations, tax and VAT obligations, compliance costs, and operational logistics must be carefully weighed.


For long-term projects, establishing a separate Norwegian entity is practical, while short-term activities may warrant alternative approaches. Your choice of entity significantly impacts liability and risks, tax obligations, and rights. Thus, it's essential to assess risks and income potential across different entity types before making a decision.

Our legal team offers extensive expertise in assisting foreign companies seeking to establish a business in Norway. Specializing in business law, our focus encompasses tax, VAT, labor regulations, and comprehensive legal support for expatriates and multinational corporations.
