Table of Contents

Our clients are foreign companies with activities in Norway, but also Norwegian sole proprietorships and Norwegian companies.

Our experience goes beyond accounting matters. Our clients expect help in many areas of their activity. We don't build bridges, roads, museums, hospitals, we don't vaccinate fish, we don't run shops online and food outlets. Our clients deal with their growing businesses. We take care of the rest. 


For over 19 years, we have been supporting our clients with our experience and knowledge of constantly changing regulations and their interpretation as well as all aspects of running a business in Norway.

This guide summarizes our experience working with companies in Norway. We hope that it will also prove useful for you.
