The 3 Best Norway PEOs & Employers of Record (EOR)


Expanding your business with a Norway PEO / EOR

Norway business start-ups are often drawn there by the high standard of living and potential for growth. The country has struggled to find its key industries beyond its North Sea oil exportation. With a firm standing as one of the world’s largest energy producers and petroleum exporters, the focus has been on natural resource extraction. State-owned Statoil is the primary reason Norway’s citizens enjoy such generous government benefits. However, the country has realized that an economy based on natural resources has its risks. Therefore, in recent years, private small businesses are assisted with incentives, and sectors such as biotechnology are growing.

The Norwegian tax laws can be difficult to understand for new businesses. Businesses with more than one employee must provide a supplementary pension plan, for example. Tax rates are based on the amount of paid wages, and percentages will vary. For any company testing the market in the country, a Norway PEO (Professional Employer Organization) is a smart solution to handle the initial launch. These companies can handle employee hires under their own name, while offering a number of other smart solutions for new businesses.

How can a PEO help you succeed in Norway?

PEOs are a simple way to speed up hiring staff – and often more. They allow your business to offload many aspects of human resources, payroll, and other administrative functions. Meanwhile, management and operations remain under your direction.

Quality PEO/EOR companies rely on local experts to help new companies navigate contracts, hiring, and even location searches. They can conduct interviews, handle recruiting, and more. We’ve listed some of the best Norway PEOs below.
