Norway is one of the most developed European countries where you can enjoy the benefits of doing business. It has skilled labour workforce and offers the secured legal environment for business in general. This is a short profile of this country. You may need to be aware of it at the time of consideration of options for establishing your future company abroad.

Major Forms of Business Presence in Norway

If you want to establish your business presence in Norway, you may do this in one of the following ways:
  • Limited Liability Company (AS) – a vehicle where founders (shareholders) do not bear any liability for the entity’s debts and obligations. To start a business in this form, you may require creating a statutory capital in the amount of NOK 30,000 (around EUR 3,500). You need to have at least 50 % of the board composed of Norwegian or EU/EEA residents. This type of vehicle ensures more security and convenience for doing business.
  • Public Limited Company (ASA) – a vehicle suitable for large businesses mostly. A minimum amount of the statutory capital of NOK 1 million (around EUR 112,000) is required for establishing this type of company. As in the case with AS, you need to form a board of Norwegian or EU/EEA residents for at least 50 %.
  • Privately Owned Company (ENK) – this is the second most popular type of vehicle in Norway that is privately-owned by a certain person. Consequently, the founder bears sole liability for all entity's undertakings. This type of business is far less expensive and is usually operated by one person only. It is some kind of equivalent to a sole proprietorship.
  • Norwegian branch of a foreign company (NUF) – the form may be suitable for testing business opportunities in Norway only.

Incorporation Requirements and Steps

If you choose Norway as your target jurisdiction, you need to pass these preliminary steps:
  1. Defining your business priorities.
  2. Selecting and verifying the business name for a future entity.
  3. Choosing your registered address.
  4. Collecting information about founders and beneficiary owners.
  5. Forming the composition of the company’s governing bodies and obtaining D-numbers (identification numbers) for non-residents.
  6. Opening a bank account for depositing the amount of the statutory capital in full.
  7. Preparing statutory documents for a future company.
  8. Submitting registration documents along with registration forms to the Norwegian Register of Business Enterprises.
  9. Registration for tax purposes, particularly, obtaining a Tax Identification Number (TIN). Obtaining a VAT-number is required if you sell VAT-related services and goods and your turnover exceeds NOK 50,000.
  10. Registration for social security purposes.
These steps are preliminary as each registration procedure is individual and may vary on a case-by-case basis.

Legal and Regulatory Framework

The legal framework of Norway is very transparent with a strong emphasis on AML compliance. Obtaining licenses and special permits may be required for certain types of activities. In the case with the company formation, the main legal acts regulating this process are the Public Liability Companies Act, the Limited Liability Companies Act and the Register of Business Enterprises Act. All companies are obliged to carry out the obligatory audit each year, except for small entities.

Advantages of the Jurisdiction

If you finally decide to establish a company in Norway, you may enjoy among others these advantages:
  • Strongly-developed economy
  • Very high standards of the quality of life
  • Experienced and skilled employees
  • Environment encouraging innovations and technologies

Tax System

Here are principal highlights of the local tax system:
  • Corporate income tax (CIT) rate – 22 % (25 % for certain types of financial activities)
  • Personal income tax (PIT) rate – 22 %
  • VAT rate – 25 %
  • Withholding tax rates (for non-residents) – (i) dividends – 25 %, (ii) royalty – 0 %, and (iii) – interests – 0 %
  • Capital gains tax rates – (i) corporate – equal to the normal CIT rate, (ii) individual – equal to the normal PIT rate.

Collaborated with the company for 3 years. I can’t say that everything was smooth from the point of view of organizing the work; there was confusion in the structure of the work, etc. But I’ll specifically highlight employee Lyubov Malinowski, she very diligently corrected all errors and was in touch at the right time, her help was significant in all processes and she approached all issues precisely. I would like to separately highlight the moment when she solved the problem at her own expense, which speaks of the person’s professionalism and increased responsibility.

As a software development crew at FewMoreTaps OÜ, we've had the pleasure of working with Prifinance on some key financial moves.First of all, navigating the world of corporate banking and finance can be a maze, but Prifinance made it feel like a walk in the park. They helped us set up a corporate bank account without the hassle of jumping on a plane or drowning in paperwork. Everything was done remotely, smoothly and securely.But that's not all. We had a slightly time-sensitive situation when it came to changing the beneficiary details on our account. Prifinance stepped up to the plate and handled everything quickly and professionally.It's not just about getting the job done. It's about how Prifinance does it. They're all about making complex financial matters simple and accessible for companies like ours. Plus, their team, especially Liubov Malinowski, has been nothing short of fantastic to work with - professional, timely and always on the ball.In short, FewMoreTaps OÜ wholeheartedly endorses Prifinance OÜ. Whether it's opening bank accounts remotely or navigating the financial legalities of running an international business, these guys have got your back. A big thank you to the entire Prifinance team for their first class support and expertise.Here's to more collaborations in the future!Best,Kiryl Nest

I'm thrilled with my experience with PriFinance! They helped me obtain a crypto license in Estonia without any hassle. The team was super understanding and always available to answer my questions and assist. It was great to see how they put effort into preparing the documents to ensure everything went smoothly. I'm delighted with the outcome and highly recommend PriFinance to anyone looking to get a license stress-free!
Opening an account with Prifinance in a Swiss bank was such an easy and quick process that I was shocked. It all started with the first call, where I received detailed guidance on the required documents and the entire procedure.One of the key highlights was their attention to detail. As someone who usually gets tangled up in paperwork, I was pleasantly surprised when they sent me all the documents and instructions clearly and neatly. No misunderstandings!Honestly, I expected opening a Swiss bank account to be complex and time-consuming, but thanks to Prifinance, I felt like a professional financial expert. Thank you for making this process so easy and enjoyable!
