In Norway, Limited Liability companies are required to maintain a register of shareholders, also known as the share register. This register must contain the names and addresses of all shareholders, as well as the number and type of shares they hold.
Companies are also required to notify the Central Coordinating Register (CCR) for Legal Entities (Brønnøysundregistrene) of any changes to the share register, including new shareholders, dividends, changes to shareholder information, and the transfer of shares.
The CCR is responsible for maintaining a central database of information on all legal entities in Norway, including companies, partnerships, and associations. The share register notification is an important part of this process, as it ensures that the CCR’s records are up to date and accurate.This must be filed for the past year within 31st of January the following year. There are penalties for late submittal.
