The Norwegian electronic invoicing is anchored on Peppol Network and relies on the Peppol eDelivery Network and Peppol BIS 3.0. Businesses and companies looking to send and receive invoices need to connect to Peppol Network via an authorized access point provider like Unimaze.
Peppol e-invoicing is a four-part process broken down as follows:
1. Access Point: The parties sending and receiving invoices must connect to the Peppol network to exchange invoices via an access point provider.
2. Sender: To send an e-invoice, the sender must use a Peppol-compliant solution. Unimaze e-invoicing software integrates into your ERP without the need to upgrade your system.
ELMA, the Norwegian national Peppol Metadata Publisher (SMP), allows businesses in the country to connect to the Peppol network to verify they’re sending compliant e-invoices.
3. Recipient: Like the sender, the entity receiving e-invoices must use a Peppol-compliant software solution.
4. Paying the Invoice: The Peppol network allows businesses to pay invoices electronically, quickly, and efficiently.

Electronic Invoices in Norway - FAQs
Is Digital Signature a Requirement for e-Invoices in Norway
No, a digital signature isn’t required for Norwegian e-invoices. Still, a digital signature provides authenticity and integrity to your invoice, ensuring it is trustable and isn’t tampered with.
What is EHF in Norway?
EHF (Electronic HandelsFormat) is the standard for electronic invoicing in Norway.
It is a standardized format for electronic invoices used by the public sector and private businesses in Norway for exchanging invoices electronically.
EHF invoices are mandatory for all public sector organizations in Norway and are also widely used in the private sector.
Is Norway Part of the EU For VAT Purposes?
No, Norway is not part of the European Union (EU) for Value Added Tax (VAT) purposes.
While the country is part of the European Economic Area (EEA), it isn't a member of the EU and, therefore, not subject to EU VAT rules and regulations.
Instead, Norway has its own VAT system and operates independently from the EU regarding VAT.
Norwegian businesses must comply with the country's VAT rules and regulations, including registering for VAT, charging the correct VAT rate on taxable supplies, and filing VAT returns with the Norwegian tax authorities.
Should I Charge VAT On Services to Norway?
The need to charge VAT on services to Norway depends on several factors, including your location and the nature of the services being provided.
If you’re operating outside of Norway, you may not be required to charge VAT on services you provide to Norwegian customers as long as they aren’t taxable in Norway.
However, if you are based in Norway, you will be required to charge VAT on services provided to customers in Norway, regardless of their location.
We recommend checking with the Norwegian tax authorities for guidance on your situation.
What is SAF-T Norway?
SAF-T (Standard Audit File for Tax) is a standard for the electronic reporting of financial and accounting data in Norway.
It was introduced by the Norwegian government to improve the efficiency of tax audits and to make it easier for businesses to comply with tax reporting requirements.
Under the SAF-T standard, businesses must electronically report financial and accounting data to the Norwegian tax authorities using a specific file format.
This file must include information such as sales and purchase invoices, bank statements, and ledger accounts. The data must be provided on time, typically on a quarterly or monthly basis, and must be accurate and complete.
