  • The account meets the conditions of the Norwegian Tax Payments Act

A legal obligation for companies that pay salaries or pensions to employees

As an employer you’re obliged to calculate and pay withholding tax when you have employees. As a rule, the payment is made to the tax collector in the municipality where the business is established.

A tax withholding account must only be used to set aside money to pay the tax authorities. The account is blocked against withdrawals and can only be used to pay tax. The account cannot be used to pay Value Added Tax (VAT).
