How to register this in the tax return?
When your employer covers for parts of your food expenses, the maximum deduction is 200 NOK per day.
You must multiply the number of nights you spent away with 200 NOK, subtracted the amount your employer covers. You add the amount to the other food and accommodation expenses you can claim deduction for, and register the amount in the food and accomodation fields in post 3.2.7.
You spend 200 days in a hotel. Your employer covers your expenses with 100 NOK per day.
You can then receive 200 NOK - 100 NOK which is what the employer covers = 100 NOK in food expenses per day
200 days x 100 NOK = 20 000 NOK
These expenses can then be registered in the food and accomodation fields in post 3.2.7 in the tax return.
If your employer offer a canteen or similar where breakfast, lunch and dinner is served, and the employees' payment is at least equivalent to the market price for such food, you can claim a deduction at the lowest rate of NOK 200 per day.
