Tax and VAT

Tax and VAT are key areas for anyone running a business or working in Norway. It often involves a great deal of documentation and large values, and the regulations are changing constantly. For Norwegian and international businesses alike, navigating the regulations can be difficult, and any misunderstandings can have major consequences.

We have one of Norway’s leading teams of experts in tax and VAT. Our lawyers have extensive experience in national and international tax law, value added tax, customs and excise duties, and cross-border taxation of individuals. We advise on every phase within tax law, from advice on strategic tax and duties, transactions, appeal cases, tax disputes before boards of appeal and the courts.

We assist Norwegian and international companies with getting established in Norway and abroad, and help employees working across national borders. Many of our lawyers have extensive experience from senior positions in international companies and networks. We have a strong international focus and collaborate with Andersen Global and Crowe Global, who are represented by tax advisors in more than 150 countries.

For our international clients, BD VAT and Tax Services provide them with statutory reporting services in Norway. Our combination of expertise in tax, VAT and accounting means that we can offer seamless services as a one-stop-shop to our clients in Norway and abroad.

We work multidisciplinary with experts in other specialties such as employment law, real estate, M&A and corporate law, and assist with matters such as transactions, structuring and restructuring, and we provide general advice on tax and VAT with a bearing on commercial decisions.
