Payroll

Running a Norwegian Payroll

Obviously, there is a totally different tax system. There is also a totally different reporting requirement. There is also a completely different basis on which benefits and tax have to be calculated.

Oh yes, and they expect you to report in a different language.

We run completely up to date Norwegian payroll software, which allows us to prepare, report and return all the necessary documents.

Unlike other payroll agencies, we make sure all employees receive a Norway compliant payslip each and every month to evidence the taxable income and tax paid through the payroll.

Here’s an example of what we can do for you:

An example Norwegian Payslip.

A year end certificate based on the above

The year end certificates are normally on pre-printed stationery with details of the various elements.

Needless to say, there are many, many more forms that need to be prepared and returned and whilst the guidance can be quite helpful, it is the nuances around the payroll that can most benefit from our input.

Where staff work in both Norway and the UK, we can help with your combined payroll to prepare and produce payslips showing both the taxes, and the offset allowed, ensuring that you can recover the maximum double tax relief at the earliest time.

We can manage this entire process for you, freeing you up to manage your business and the cost of all of this is very reasonable, so contact us today.

Payment of taxes

Payment of payroll taxes is made every two months, on the 15th day after the end of the bi-monthly reporting period.

So for the reporting period January and February, the reporting has to be done and the tax paid by 15 March.

Payment should be made to the International Tax Collection Authority, PO Box 8103, NO-4068 Stavanger, Norway.
