As a business or person responsible for an organisation with turnover above a certain threshold amount, you will normally be obliged to register the enterprise in the VAT Register.
Some types of goods and services are not vatable. Only the vatable component of the turnover is taken into consideration when we decide whether the business or organisation is required to register.
Which businesses must report and pay VAT?
|Threshold amount for businesses:||NOK 50,000|
As a general rule, all businesses with a turnover above this amount during the past 12 months must collect, report and pay VAT. All businesses which must collect VAT on goods and services they sell must register in the VAT Register.
Which organisations must report and pay VAT?
|Threshold amount for voluntary organisations:||NOK 140,000|
|Threshold amount for other organisations:||NOK 50,000|
As a general rule, all organisations with a turnover of more than this amount during the past 12 months must collect, report and pay VAT.
