HOW TO START YOUR OWN BUSINESS

Invest in Norway does not carry out registration processes for foreign companies. You will be guided through the text and links below, or we can help you with finding consultants or lawyers that provide such services. Some municipalities also provide support on the registration process.

Setting up business in Norway is easily done through the The Brønnøysund Register Centre. The form “coordinated register notification” is a joint form for registration in the Central Coordinating Register for Legal Entities, the Register of Business Enterprises, The Value Added Tax Register and the Foundation Register.

This form also collects basic data for Nav Aa Register (The Norwegian Labour and Welfare Organisations employer - employee register), the Statistics Norway’s Register of Companies and Business Enterprises, the Norwegian Gaming and Foundation Authority and The Corporate Taxation Data Register.

The form is available for download. Please note that the Coordinated register notification is only available in Norwegian. The form must be completed in Norwegian. Coordinated register notification Part 1 – Guide is available in English.
