Do you live in Norway and receive pension from another Nordic country?

This applies to you who live in Norway and receive a pension from another Nordic country. This information only applies to taxation of your foreign pension.

If you receive other social security benefits than pension from another Nodic country, see Social security benefits.

Taxation in Norway

You must declare the whole pension from the other Nordic country in your Norwegian tax return. This also applies if you have paid tax on your pension in the country from which it is paid.

In connection with your tax assessment in Norway, you can claim a deduction from your Norwegian tax (credit) for the tax you have paid on your pension in the country from which it is paid. The deduction is limited to the Norwegian tax on your income from abroad. You must complete the form 'Deduction for tax paid abroad by a person (credit)' (RF-1147) and submit it to the tax office along with your tax return.

Remember to keep the documentation that you have paid tax on your pension abroad, so you can submit it to the tax office.

National Insurance contributions

If you receive public pension only from one other Nordic country (and not Norwegian public pension), you do not pay National Insurance contributions in Norway on the foreign pension. If you receive another pension in addition, you must contact the Norwegian Labour and Welfare Administration (NAV) to clarify whether you have to pay National Insurance contributions in Norway.
