Norway has announced changes regarding VAT returns that should come into force starting January 2022. The main objective is to submit VAT returns directly from ERP systems via installing APIs. Manual upload via the Altinn portal will, however, still be available.
The digital VAT return will be based on SAF-T coding. However, it will still be a separate tax reporting requirement. The new digital format will be in XML, and the existing 19 boxes will be extended to 30 boxes. Norwegian tax authorities have provided a method for validation for the VAT return file. Taxpayers can test the VAT return before submission and receive error messages.
If you are interested in a demo or be introduced to our local partner, please get in touch. The on-request reporting requirement is already operational at clients. Taxpayers need to submit predefined data in a legal format when a tax audit is announced.
