Norway Professional Employer Organisation (PEO) Services 

Bradford Jacobs Consulting provides employer of record services for clients that want to hire employees and run payroll without first establishing a branch office or subsidiary say, as an example, in Norway. Your candidate is hired via Bradford Jacobs agencies in Norway in accordance with local labor laws and can be set up within a few days. One of our experts is assigned to work with your team, representing your company exactly as if he or she were your employee and working to meet your requirements in that country.

Our PEO service enables clients to run payroll in Norway while HR services, tax, and compliance management matters are lifted from their shoulders onto ours. As global PEO professionals, we manage employment contract best practices, as well as severance issues and even termination if required. We also keep you up to date of any changes to local employment laws in Norway.

Establishing a branch office or subsidiary in Norway to engage a small team is time consuming, expensive and complex. Norwegian labor law has strong worker protections, requiring great attention to detail and an understanding of local best practices. Our global partners make it problem-free and an easy exercise to expand into Norway. We can help you hire your candidate of choice, handle HR matters and payroll, and ensure that you’re in compliance with local laws – all without the burden of setting up a Norway branch office or subsidiary outfit.


Norway PEO Features and Benefits

Solutions available for all nationals.

Employment and business support provided by local professional partners.

Contractors benefit from the highest legitimate retention through the use of tax and social security treaties, expatriate tax regimes, pension schemes, double taxation agreements and tax claimable expenses.

Single point of contact, so contractors can focus on their job.

Payroll & Settlement

  • Our Bradford Jacobs’ employment solutions helps you have your mobile workforce officially employed in Norway by our company instead of setting up your own legal entity there. You just choose the right candidate that you need to have working for you in Norway and then leave it to us to handle all the rest – fast and hassle-free.

On-boarding

Once the contractor registers with us, we take care of all work-related permits and registration formalities. He or she sends us completed time sheets and any approved expenses. We invoice the end client. When the invoice is settled, we deduct all contributions due to the Norwegian authorities and transfer the remaining salary into the contractor’s bank of choice.

Finally, at the end of the financial year, we prepare the year-end accounts and, at the end of the assignment, we de-register the contractor.

We appreciate each situation and business is different. That is why Bradford Jacobs offers a consultative and bespoke solution to every client. Personalised job specifications, job offers and benefits packages are all agreed with you during the set-up process. We know one size does not fit all and rest assured we can accommodate all bespoke requirements.
