R&D Incentives in Norway:
Enhance your company’s performance with R&D Incentives

What are R&D Incentives?

Since 2002, the Norwegian government’s “SkatteFUNN” program offers R&D tax deductions for Norwegian companies undertaking R&D projects. Companies can deduct 19% of project costs for approved activities, with the Research Council of Norway assessing eligibility. This initiative aims to stimulate R&D growth, encourage investment, and boost Norway’s economic growth, allowing companies across various sectors to benefit from the scheme.

The Norwegian R&D tax incentive allows companies to deduct 19% of eligible project costs, with an annual cap of 25 million NOK per company. This cap enables savings of up to 4.75 million NOK annually.

Do You Qualify?

Eligible expenditures for R&D tax deductions and credits in Norway are determined by specific R&D activities aimed at gaining new scientific or technical knowledge. These activities must align with the OECD Frascati Manual’s definition of R&D, which includes fundamental research, applied research, development work, and feasibility studies, ensuring a broad understanding of eligible R&D initiatives.
