    The PAYE and tax system in Norway is every bit as complex as the UK system, but also has many more and different reporting requirements, and a full understanding of the Norwegian tax system is vital in order to meet your obligations.

    Failure to meet the reporting requirements is potentially a much more serious matter than in the UK, and with a qualified accountant helping you through the maze, we can make life simple for you.

    We currently act for dozens of employers and over 250 individuals and companies, helping them prepare their Norwegian payrolls and to submit their business and personal tax returns.  At the present time we submit around 200 payroll returns each month covering

    We are a-melding compliant and can file electronically

    We can use our fully compliant software to record pay and expenses and prepare payslips that are approved by the Tax authorities in Norway, and provide us with all the information you will need for the UK Inland Revenue, and your accountants.

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

    We can help you ensure that you minimise the tax liabilities for the employees and maximise the double tax relief for the employer.
