Relocation expenses due to new job

Relocation expenses that you've incurred mainly in connection with a new job, are deductible if you accepted the job offer before you relocated.

The deduction entitlement also applies to expenses for relocating from another country to Norway, or vice versa, if the income from the new job is liable to tax in Norway.

The deduction entitlement covers the following, among other things:

  • travel expenses,
  • expenses for moving home contents and movable property, including packing, packaging, insurance, etc.

Deductions for relocation expenses incurred due to a new job are included in the minimum standard deduction in your tax return. If you do not make use of the standard minimum deduction, you must still enter the deduction for relocation expenses in your tax return.
