freelancing in Norway
Thread poster: Zsanett Rozendaal-Pandur
because my written Norwegian does not feel comfortable enough yet, i'll just stick to English.
I'm a freelance translator for Dutch, Hungarian and English. I moved to Norway a short while ago and i've decided to stay. I'm now wondering what the best way is to establish myself as a freelancer. I know there's the possibility to start an enkeltpersonsforetak. It sounds simple, although i haven't been able to find out if and how i will get a VAT number by registering.
I wonder if you guys could give me some tips - what's the most efficient way to start, in your experience? Anything pitfalls i should be aware of? It's important that i have a VAT nr, as i have clients whom i otherwise can't work with.
Bit dumb, i just noticed a similar question that was posted on this forum earlier this year. The difference is that i want to stay permanently and i have no VAT nr. of my own yet, but i need one. And the main question applies: what's the best way to start? Thanks.

English to Norwegian
is the place to start looking. But you've probably already figured this out.
Basically, you register there for a enkeltpersonsforetak and you can also fill out a green form (if I remember correctly) for VAT.
I haven't done this myself as I hardly ever have Norwegian customers.
But www.brreg.no and www.bedin.no are great sites for companies.
