Coronavirus - important information from the Tax Administration

Pre-register in the Value Added Tax Register

If you expect significant VAT-liable sales within a short period, you can register in advance in the Value Added Tax Register (VAT Register).

How to apply

You apply to register in advance by filling out the Coordinated register notification.

Does this apply to me?

To apply for advance registration, you must

  • have made purchases of goods and services for the enterprise of at least NOK 250,000 that can be directly linked to future vatable turnover
  • and it will be more than four months from your application to the registration threshold is reached


  • vatable revenue will exceed the registration threshold within three weeks of the start-up

If you're granted advance registration, you'll be entitled to claim deductions for input VAT on purchases of equipment made by the enterprise before turnover has started. The Norwegian Tax Administration decides if you can be advance registered.
