This item shows the amount of unemployment benefit paid to self-employed persons and fishermen. Unemployment benefit is a benefit rather than income from employment. The amount will normally be completed with the total that has been reported, so you should check that everything is correct.

Does this item concern me?

The item concerns all self-employed persons who have been unemployed and received unemployment benefit while they were unemployed

  • from the National Insurance scheme and/or
  • from a private medical and accident insurance policy which exceeds NOK 20 per day.

The item concerns all fishermen who:

  • are registered in the Norwegian fishermen's register (sheet B),
  • have been unemployed and received unemployment benefit from the Guarantee Fund,
  • are self-employed or receive seafarers' wages.

How do I enter this in my tax return?

The item will normally be pre-completed with the amount you have received. The amount is based on what was reported by the organisation that paid you, so you should check that everything is correct.

The amounts you should perform the check against will be shown in the Certificate of Tax and Pay Deducted (also known as an annual statement) that you receive in January from the organisation that paid you.

You must correct the tax return if the amount is wrong. You should also contact the organisation that paid you to ensure that the annual statement is correct.

Log in and fill in the item.
