Value-added tax (VAT)

The value-added tax (VAT) system entails indirect taxation of private consumption. VAT on sales of goods and services is calculated and entered as a deduction at each step in the value-added chain to the end-user. Most businesses are required to calculate value-added tax on the whole or parts of their sales, and consequently have the right to make deductions for incoming VAT.

We assist by ensuring that VAT calculation and entry of deductions is correct. VAT law is constantly evolving, in both the right and the wrong direction. Storløkken possesses 29 years of experience of Norwegian and international VAT issues. Our clients range from central and local government, through corporates, both large and small, to non-profit organisations.

We assist in clarifying matters in connection with:

  • VAT issues/resolution of VAT issues
  • Entry into agreements, delivery and accounting
  • Tax audits
  • Appeal cases and disputes
