A company with VATable revenue over NOK 50 000 in the past 12 months in Norway needs to register for VAT and file VAT return. VAT is filed bi-monthly or yearly depending on the company’s turnover. The entity is also entitled for VAT refund on purchases used in its VATable business.
The declaration shall be done through the electronical portal www.altinn.no by the company itself or through a VAT representative. VAT representative can be registered through filing a “Coordinated register notification” application.
