Characteristics of the e-invoicing in Norway

Who is obliged to use e‑Invoicing in Norway

For the B2G transactions, mandatory e-invoicing exists from 2019.

Despite the lack of mandatory policies, e-invoicing in private sector is being widely adopted by companies.

E-invoicing process description

To comply with national regulations in Norway, both economic operators and contracting authorities rely on Peppol Access Point (AP) service providers.  In order to be able to send and receive through the PEPPOL, public administrations and their suppliers must be registered with ELMA (Elektronisk mottakaradresseregister).

What is the required format of an e-invoice

Norway uses the PEPPOL network for B2G and B2B e-invoicing purposes.

Norwegian public entities accept both e-invoice formats: EHF Billing 3.0 (Elektronisk Handelsformat) and Peppol BIS 3.0.
