Pensions for those who are self-employed
Savings that are suitable for freelancers, those with sole proprietorships or who run a business in addition to having a job.
Save for your own pension
Being self-employed has its benefits, but in terms of pensions, it’s not a major advantage. To ensure you get a retirement pension in addition to the National Insurance Scheme it’s therefore up to you to sort this out. With a defined contribution pension you can get up to 50 per cent of your savings in tax deductions. The more you take out in salary, the more you save in tax. You can save up to 7 per cent of your salary for your pension.
Who is this suitable for?
This is a form of saving that is best suited to self-employed people, freelancers, people with sole proprietorships or who run a business alongside their job.
The National Insurance basic amount (G) as of 1 May 2021 is NOK 106 399.
The savings app Spare
In the Spare app you can start pension savings yourself with mutual funds and shares. You can also buy, sell and switch equity funds and shares as you go.
