In the summertime we experience a prolonged processing time with the Norwegian authorities. The reason is a shortage of personel due to summer holidays but the processing time is also effect by the many businesses currently applying for a Norwegian registration as a private limited company or a non-residential Norwegian VAT registration.
So, if you are preparing for the Christmas sales in Norway on local terms to go smoothly you should consider starting up the process of registering now.
Processing time with the autorities is currently 15 working days for registering a private limited company and 23 working days for a non-residential VAT registration (NUF – Norsk Utenlandsk Foretak).
If you need a Norwegian registration or seek further information, then please contact TIMEVAT.
