A good defined-contribution pension is a form of security for your employees and ensures that your company is competitive when recruiting in the future.
How does a defined-contribution pension work?
A defined-contribution pension scheme for businesses provides a simple way to ensure statutory saving. The scheme also gives the company the right to a tax deduction.
You can choose a deposit between 2 per cent and 7 per cent of the employees’ salaries up to 12G. An additional deposit of up to 25.1 per cent can also be given if the employee has a salary between 7.1 – 12G.
Choice of investment
In DNB, your defined-contribution pension will be managed safely, sustainably and responsibly in Norway’s largest pension management environment.
When launching a pension agreement as a business owner, you can choose a starter profile. The employee can then easily change their own pension profile in the online bank or savings app Spare.
Your business must have a defined-contribution scheme if it has:
- Two employees who have at least 75 per cent positions.
- One employee without an ownership interest who has at least 75 per cent positions.
- Employees who each have at least 20 per cent positions, and who together constitute two FTEs or more.
- For self-employed people, different rules apply. Read more here
Statutory minimum requirements for pension savings:
- You must save at least 2 per cent of the employee’s salary up to 12G. (G stands for the National Insurance basic amount)
- The agreement must include a retirement pension and a waiver of contribution should they become incapacitated for work. The waiver of contribution ensures that the pension savings will continue even if the employee becomes incapacitated for work.
