Norwegian term or phrase: inntekt, skatt, formue
heading/coloumn titles
tom
English translation:Income, Tax, Assets
Explanation:
I'd say that "Inntekt" comprises more than just sales revenues, so "income" might be more to the point than "revenues"

Also, "Formue" comprises more than "Invested Capital", also floating and fixed assets , so "Assets" should be the most correct translation.

"Skatt" is just, well "tax" or "taxes", since most often serveral different taxes
are applicable...

2)skatt - tax; eg inntekts xxxx = income tax.
3)Formue = wealth, means,capital, property, fortune; antatt xxxxx = estimated property, betydelig xxxxx = considerable wealth, nødt til å ta av xxxxxen= have to use capital

Explanation:
The translation of these terms really depends on the context, but seeing the three terms together makes me think you could be dealing with income tax forms, and if this is the case, good luck to you!
You'll want to use the standard English terms seen on income tax forms. These are the ones I mention above.

I hope this will be of some use!
