Deletion from the simplified registration system

A supplier will be deleted from the simplified registration system when the enterprise ceases trading or when the conditions for using the simplified registration system are no longer met. A supplier will also be deleted if it repeatedly fails to fulfil its obligations pursuant to the Value Added Tax Act.
Deleted suppliers who still engage in activities that are liable for VAT are obliged to register in the Norwegian VAT.
