In some cases, you can submit the tax return for wage earners and pensioners if that's what you've received. If you started your business during the year, you can log in and amend your tax return.
Are you required to submit?
If you run a business and submit your tax return online, you must submit the tax return for self-employed persons. Some receive the tax return for wage earners and pensioners where personal income is precompleted under item item1.6.2 and business income is precompleted under item item 2.7.6.
Unless you have other business income or expenses related to your business, you do not have to change to the tax return for self-employed persons.
If you have other personal or business income than the amounts precompleted under item item 1.6.2 and item 2.7.6, you must switch to the tax return for self-employed persons and delete the precompleted amounts under item 1.6.2 and 2.7.
Did you start a business during the year?
If you started a business during the year, but received the tax return for wage earners and pensioners instead of the one for self-employed persons, you must do the following:
- See What form of reporting should I choose?
- Log in to Altinn. You'll find the form "Tax return for wealth and income tax – wage earners and pensioners etc." in your inbox under the section for required actions.
- Under the menu item "All forms", you choose RF-1030 "Tax return for wealth and income tax – personal self-employed persons, etc.". When you open the tax return for self employed persons you're asked which income statement you'll submit with the tax return or if you'd rather use the Business Tax Return, which is a new and easier submission method for self-employed persons with simple tax affairs.
You'll see that the tax return for self-employed persons is precompleted with the same amounts as in the tax return for wage earners and pensioners that you received.
If you're a self-employed person, you might find the following guide useful: Start help for businesses.
