Are you exempt from the requirement to pay national insurance contributions in Norway?

If you don't think you should have to pay national insurance contributions in Norway, you can no longer send form A1 to the Norwegian Tax Administration. NAV is now responsible for receiving such notifications and assessing exemptions. NAV will notify the Norwegian Tax Administration if it decides you're not a member of the Norwegian National Insurance Scheme and therefore should not have to pay national insurance contributions.

We will then notify you that we will amend your tax return so that national insurance contributions are omitted. You'll be notified of the decision once the amendment has been implemented. You will also receive a revised tax assessment notice.
