Doing business in Norway
Foreign multinationals entering Norway for the first time are often surprised by the multitude of compliance obligations, and also by the efficiency of the Norwegian public authorities when it comes to becoming aware of their presence in Norway.
If your company is planning to conduct activity in Norway for a longer period of time, you should consider setting up a separate Norwegian company. Read more on our page Establish a business in Norway, where you can download our useful checklist.
If your company will be present in Norway only for a shorter period of time, it might not be necessary or advisable to establish a Norwegian company. The foreign company must then register as a "Norwegian registered foreign company" (NUF). The company will subsequently receive an organization number and be registered in the The Brønnøysund Register Centre (Companies Registry).
