Go back to paying every other month?
If you wish to return to paying every other month, you must apply to the tax office by 1 December in order for the new arrangement to apply from 1 January of the following year. If your application is approved, you will then have to submit returns every other month for at least the next two years. You will be obliged to apply if your turnover exceeds NOK 1 million.
