If your enterprise chooses to bring its own
employees to complete the contract, these
employees are defined as posted workers. A
separate regulation applies to such workers.
These provisions are intended to ensure that
workers have certain minimum rights across
international borders, and include provisions on
minimum wage in certain industries.

Posted workers from countries with which Norway
has a bilateral agreement on social security
will be exempt from paying social security
contributions to Norway. They will continue to
pay social insurance contributions to the
country from which they have been posted.
Thus, they are not entitled to a Norwegian
pension, but continue to earn pension benefits’
in their home country.
You must contact the authorities in your home
country to find out whether there is a bilateral
agreement on social security with Norway, and
whether you meet the conditions to remain
covered by the social security system in your
home country. This must be documented to
NAV (contact information)
in Norway. You will then avoid having an
interruption in social security contributions in
your home country.
If your enterprise
workers in Norway to complete the contract,
Norwegian laws and regulations
apply without exception.
The State Register of Employers and Employees (Aa Register)
is a register that records the relationship between employers and employees and is used among others by NAV and the Norwegian Tax Administration. If you have employees who do not live in or pay tax to Norway, you must notify the Tax Administration.
