Alternative A: Tax return with income statements and additional forms
This is the form of submission that most businesses have used in recent years. It is still possible for all self-employed persons to submit in the same way.
Even if your business had no activity in 2016, you still need to submit the tax return for self-employed persons with an empty Income statement 1 for corporations.
Limited liability companies and Norwegian-registered foreign enterprises (NUF) must submit: "Næringsoppgave 2" (in Norwegian only).
Sole proprietorships must submit: Income statement 1 for corporations or "Næringsoppgave 2" (in Norwegian only).
Visual artists who are sole proprietorships must submit: "Næringsoppgave for billedkunstnere" (in Norwegian only).
Insurance companies must submit: "Næringsoppgave 3 for forsikringsselskap" (in Norwegian only).
Banks and financial enterprises must submit: "Næringsoppgave 4 for bank og finansieringsforetak" (in Norwegian only).
You must also submit any additional forms which apply to your business. You will find these in Altinn.

Alternative B: Tax return and Business Tax Return
The Business Tax Return is a form of submission for sole proprietorships and limited liability companies with simpler tax circumstances. We recommend that you use this form if the service is suitable for your business.
Alternative C: Simplified submission for enterprises with operating revenues of NOK 50,000 or less
As in previous years, most sole proprietorships with a low turnover can report this information directly in the tax return for businesses. Even if your business had no activity in 2015, you still need to submit a blank Income statement 1.
Check whether you meet the conditions for simplified submission.
It is no longer possible to submit the tax return for self-employed persons on paper.
The Norwegian Parliament has decided that all self-employed persons must submit the tax return and attachments electronically. You will no longer receive the tax return on paper. This also applies to people who have previously opted out of electronic communication.
The exception may be the tax return for self-employed persons who died before the deadline for delivery.
