You can use the “My VAT account” service to see how much VAT you owe.
Most enterprises must submit the tax return for VAT every other month. Small enterprises can apply to submit once a year. If you do not submit information in time, you will have to pay an amount per day until you submit. To alter a tax return for VAT for 2017 which you have already submitted, you must submit a correction
To report for 2016, you should use the Turnover statement for general industry (VAT statement).
The remarks field on the tax return for VAT
If you use the remarks field, the tax return for VAT will be processed manually. You should only use this field if you want to write something which we should be aware of when we process your return. If you are unsure about the applicable regulations, the form itself or how to complete it, you should not enter anything here, but ask the tax office in advance. You should also not use the remarks field to report a change of address. You do this by using the form ‘Coordinated register notification’ on altinn.no. The same applies if the enterprise ceases trading. You do not need to state in the remarks field that you have not had any turnover, imports, exports or purchases during the period.
Submitting via finance systems
You can also submit the tax return for VAT to Altinn via a finance system which has this facility. Enterprises must update their system before they start bookkeeping for 2017.
