Norway extends temporary cut of 12% VAT rate to 6% until September 2021

Norway is to prolong the last year’s temporary Value Added Tax reduced rate cut from 12% to 6% until 30 September 2021.

The rate was originally cut in April 2020 to help key sectors hit by the economic effects of COVID-19 and the lockdown.  The rate was intended to return to 12% on 30 June 2021.

The taxable services which will continue to benefit from the cut are:

  1. Passenger transport
  2. Public broadcasting
  3. Cinemas, museums, cultural events and sporting activities
  4. Hotels, camping and similar overnight accommodation
