The authorities must be notified when you found a company, when employees are hired and when you start selling goods and/or services liable to VAT and other taxes.
If at least one of the mentioned conditions applies, you must register the business with The Central Coordinating Register for Legal Entities.
Obtain the form ”Coordinated register notification” (Samordnet registermelding).
The Coordinated register notification will save you from reporting the different applicable events to individual bodies.
In the process of entering the data, you will find guidance and questions that will help you clarify if your business must be registered in the Register of Business Enterprises, if you are an employer and if you are eligible to pay VAT on the goods and/or services you sell.
The different bodies that need to know about your business cooperate by exchanging the information with each other. Hence, all information may be submitted to the Brønnøysund Register Centre, the Norwegian Labour and Welfare Organisation (NAV) or the Tax Office.
These offices may also provide forms and help you fill them in.
Later on you will use the same form for announcing changes related to the business. All the cooperating bodies will have their records corrected when you have notified one office.
