Meeting your obligations as an employer can be incredibly daunting especially for foreign companies with employees working in Norway. Due to complicated legislation and constantly changing rules it is quite usual in Norway to outsource payroll services to a professional partner. 

Regular payroll administration for Norwegian “limited” companies (“AS)

Throughout the year, we will calculate your employees' net pay, report the figures and information to the relevant authorities and provide you with payslips to pass on to your staff. We can calculate the tax and National Insurance deductions applicable. We will file bimonthly payroll returns and the year-end RF-1015 ‘Lønns- og trekkoppgave’ (Certificate of Pay and Tax Deducted). Late payments or underpayments of employers' deductions can lead to hefty penalties, so we can help you avoid incurring these.


Every company from outside Norway offering services in Norway needs to report both contracts and employees. Information about contracts and employees used in
connection with a contract shall be reported using form RF-1199 ‘Information about contracts, contractors and employees’. We can assist you in completing the necessary forms and inform you of tax consequences for your company and your employees.

ID cards in construction business

All undertakings, both Norwegian and foreign, that perform work at building and construction sites are required to provide their employees with ID cards (Norwegian: “byggekort”).
