Company Formation in Norway
Norway has long stood at the forefront in terms of quality of life. It has a wealthy, stable economy and has managed to find the perfect balance between social welfare and a free democracy. That’s why it is no surprise that Norway’s corporate tax is a transparent and fair 22%, with no additional taxes in place except for companies in the energy and financial sectors. Opening a Norwegian company is fairly straightforward although there are some formalities to be taken care of.

Here are some common questions about company formations in Norway.
What types of companies can be formed in Norway?
In line with the majority of the rest of Europe, the most popular company-types in Norway are:
- Private Limited Company (AS)
- Public Limited Company (ASA)
- Branch or subsidiary of a foreign-based company
What is the personal income tax level in Norway?
Norway levies an extremely high income tax on individuals. But, like its Scandinavian compatriot, Denmark, it has a vigorous social welfare program in place which helps people who fall on hard times. For the entrepreneur, however, a lower tax rate might be able to be achieved by taking a high-dividends, low-salary option from your registered company. (Please double-check any tax strategy with your accountant as every case is different and laws are always changing.)
How much capital is required to start a Norwegian Limited Liability Company (AS)?
NOK 30,000, or approximately €2,700.
Is Norway part of the EU?
Norwegians have voted twice in referendums to not be part of the EU (by a narrow margin) for fears that membership would threaten its strong fishing industry and its status as a welfare state.
But Norway is part of the EEA — the European Economic Area — which is an international economic agreement allowing for the extension of the EU’s single market to non-member countries. As such, Norway participates with no barriers to trade with the EU.
What incentives and tax breaks exist in Norway for foreign investors?
Norway has a limited number of incentives for foreign investors and new businesses.
