Working as a consultant in Norway

When given an opportunity to work in Norway, there are numerous aspects to assess prior to project start. Most consultants worry about their earnings or retention from their contract rate. Most companies worry about compliance and onboarding. We can enlighten both parties by providing a projection and guaranteeing compliance, just ask us to.

Being on payroll – how does it work?

We will formally be the employer of the consultant(s) working in Norway. In being the employer, we will run the payroll, handle the taxation, pay national insurance, perform the payments, support and advise in complex matters and guarantee compliance along with it.

Retention essentially means what is left as a payable net salary after all taxes, pension, insurance, fee, holiday pay and social security is taken out. It’s a complex estimation which shows the estimated return on a given rate. We produce more than 1000 projections each year, and are happy to to provide you with one as well.

If you are a contrator with a possible assignment in Norway, we recommend speaking to us before you choose whether to accepts. We provide a breakdown of all figures from your rate, allowing you to make an informed decision on your possiblity.

Onboarding, in our meaning, means gathering all the necessary information, formalities, registrations and permits to ensure that a person is able to work compliantly in Norway. It’s a rather big task to makes sure everything is in order, but we have the oversight and know-how.

After having prepared all documents and formalities, it’s time for the on-going phase. The routine is normally that we invoice the desired client, and upon receival of payment, we run the payroll. We do offer express payment services in cases where the credit time is stretched. We declare all relevant taxes, national insurance and so forth, and also disbursing the funds. In essence we like to think that we are making it easy to be employed.

The Norwegian income tax scheme is progressive. In general it is safe to say that the more you earn, the more you pay in taxes. We will assess the situation of our employees and advise on the options which legally offers the best retention. This may include deductions such as commuter benefits and also the newly introduced PAYE-scheme, which is very important to calculate correct.

Foreign consultants working in Norway must be obtain a working permit (if from outside of the EU) and also obtain a D-number and be identified at the local police office. We can facilitate all the aspects of coming to Norway, including the abovementioned, and also setting up a bank account, finding a house/apartment, and much more.
