KAR Account Validation Service - Verification of account and ownership
The KAR Account Validation Service is the Norwegian banks’ joint register for payment accounts. With the KAR Account Validation Service, you can confirm whether an account is associated with a specific organisation number or national identity number, and whether the account can be used for incoming payments. In this way, you can be sure that the account is valid and is owned by the given recipient. It is possible to verify both individual accounts and larger lists. You can get the service in both the online bank and your accounting system.
The register contains information from banks in Norway about deposit accounts in Norwegian kroner. Searches against the KAR Account Validation Service can be used in connection with payment services.
