What do electronic tax deduction cards entail for you as an employer?

  • You can order tax deduction cards for your employees via your payroll system or via skatteetaten.no.
  • You will be notified if any of your employees amend their tax deduction cards and you are responsible for updating the tax deduction card details for the next payroll run.
  • You need to have access to employees' national ID numbers/D numbers in order to obtain electronic tax deduction cards for them.
  • You are only permitted to obtain electronic tax deduction cards for persons you are going to make taxable payments to.
  • Your employees will be notified that you have obtained tax deduction cards for them.
  • If you are unsure whether you are your employees' main employer or a secondary employer, you must clarify that with them. This only applies to employees with table-based cards.
