In Norway, Stripe Tax supports calculation and collection of VAT.
When to register for tax collection
Use the Thresholds tab to get insights about your potential tax registration obligations in Norway. Stripe also notifies you with email and Dashboard alerts when you need to register to collect tax. Learn more about how the monitoring tool works.
If you’re based outside Norway, you must register in Norway as soon as your taxable sales in Norway reach 50,000 NOK during a period of 12 months and no reverse charge applies. Businesses located in the European Economic Area can register directly with the Norwegian tax administration. Businesses located outside the EEA must appoint a Norwegian VAT representative unless they use the simplified registration procedure (VOEC), which is available for B2C sales of digital services and low-value goods (< 3,000 NOK).
For example, if you’re based in the US, sell digital services to Norwegian consumers and exceed the threshold during a period of 12 months (from February of the past year to January of the current year), you must register in Norway. However, if you sell digital services only to Norwegian businesses, you don’t need to register because these services are subject to reverse charge.
Threshold: 50,000 NOK
Period: 12 months
Included transactions: Any taxable transactions that reverse charge doesn’t apply to.

How we calculate taxes
Stripe calculates VAT for your transactions in Norway.
Generally, most transactions are taxable in the jurisdiction where your customer is. Stripe assumes the sale of most goods or services to be taxable unless specifically exempted.
In Norway, there are some territories outside of the scope of the standard tax system and may have different rules that should apply. Stripe won’t calculate tax for customers based there, even if you’ve added a registration for Norway. Learn more about how Stripe handles excluded territories. This applies to the following locations:

How to report and file your taxes
You’re responsible for filing and remitting your taxes to Norway. Stripe doesn’t file taxes on your behalf. However, we do have trusted partners who can help manage your filing and remittance.
