If you have received an error message (MAGNET/EDAG)
If you have not received an error message
If you have forgotten to specify the date or have specified the wrong date but have not received an error message concerning this in the feedback (A 03), you can correct the error in the next a-melding. You should also check whether the information concerning FTE percentage is correct. You do not need to correct previously submitted a-meldings.
If you use a payroll system, check with your system supplier if you are not sure how to make corrections in your system.
What do we use the information for
NAV uses the information in its case processing. A change in FTE percentage often explains why an income has been changed and this can be important in the correct calculation of benefits such as sickness benefit.
Statistics Norway (SSB) uses the information to calculate pay statistics. SSB must know the number of days in a month on which the old and new FTE percentages applied in order to obtain a correct ratio between working hours and paid salary.
Information on the most recent date of change in FTE percentage for ordinary and maritime employment is transferred to the Aa Register. NAV distributes information concerning employment from the Aa Register to private and public sector companies and organisations that are permitted to receive it. Examples of such organisations are the Norwegian Tax Administration and the Norwegian Labour Inspection Authority.
