Norway has become a hotspot for construction of datacenters.
Norway’s ideal climate, combined with Norwegian authorities’ willingness to facilitate for the construction of datacenters have been tipped to increase the demand for workforce significantly the coming years.
Global companies are now looking towards Norway for their next datacenter projects, leading to an increase of demand for foreign skilled workers.
Due to the high demand of employees linked to these projects, it will also be of high importance for all involved companies to make sure they operate compliantly, both on company and employee level.
ECOVIS have been assisting several foreign companies involved in the construction of different data centers, meaning we are well aware of the requirements for both companies and their foreign employees working on these projects.
For international companies involved in building datacenter projects, many obligations shall be taken care of. A good way to start is to map out a plan of action in regard of complex stautory regulations on registration, tax liability, accounting requirement and other aspects. Depending on the character of proejct, the tax-liability in Norway can vary quite a lot.
We support different companies with facilitating work & residence permits for their employees, company formation, payroll, tax advisory, HSE-cards, potential housing services etc, meaning the employer only have 1 point of contact during the whole process, ensuring these critical topics are covered by a local professional compliance partner.
