In order for refund payments to be made correctly and on time, the payment instructions must be up to date and have the following features
1. the international format IBAN/SWIFT
2. the name and address of the account holder
3. the account must accept Norwegian kroner (NOK)
Also, a unique payment reference per refund case is helpful in ensuring a successful payment (max. 20 characters).
Payments for refunds regarding income years for which the assessment has been published before treatment, are added interest. The assessment is usually published in October the year after the income year.
The payment may arrive one or two months after the decision has been sent to the claimant. The decision will not contain information regarding the interest added. Therefore, please be aware that the amount paid to your account may be higher than the principal sum mentioned in the decision.
