Legal assistance

Before starting up a business in Norway there are many considerations you have to take.  

If your company plans to conduct activity in Norway for a longer period of time, you should consider setting up a separate Norwegian company. If your company will be present in Norway only for a shorter time period, it might not be necessary or advisable to establish a Norwegian company.

The type of corporation you choose is of great importance in relation to liability, risk, tax, rights and duties. You should weigh the risk and income opportunities related to the different types of entities against each other. The lawyers in Visma have extensive experience in guiding foreigners that consider doing business in Norway. We specialize in corporate law with a special focus on tax, VAT, labour law and legal services for expats.
