A list is presented below of some of the reasons why applications may be rejected. The Brønnøysund Register Centre processes applications using a range of controls based on advance checks performed by accountants and auditors, automated checks and manual checks.
The quarantine accommodation has not been approved by the Norwegian Labour Inspection Authority
Since 22 February 2021, there has been a requirement in place for accommodation provided by an employer to be approved in advance by the Norwegian Labour Inspection Authority prior to entry to Norway. Grants are not awarded for entry quarantine completed after 22 February 2021 in accommodation which has not been pre-approved by the Norwegian Labour Inspection Authority.
Number of rooms stated in application higher than the number approved for the quarantine accommodation
An application will be rejected if the number of single occupancy rooms stated in the application is higher than the number approved for the quarantine accommodation.
Signed by person without a key role
Applications not signed by a person with a key role in the enterprise will be rejected.
It may be that someone who does not hold a key role has access to sign the application because of the delegations made in Altinn. The enterprise is responsible for ensuring that the appropriate person signs the application.
Enterprises that have had an application rejected because it had been signed by a person without a key role may submit a new application.
Failure to submit annual financial statements
Applications from enterprises that have not submitted annual financial statements for 2019 (applicable to enterprises established during or before 2019) will be rejected.
However, this does not apply to enterprises that were established in the second half of 2019 and have opted to exercise their right to have a financial year lasting up to 18 months.
If an enterprise has had an application rejected because it has not submitted annual financial statements, the enterprise must arrange for its annual financial statements to be registered in the Register of Company Accounts before it submits a new application.
A new application can be submitted once the annual financial statements have been approved.
Tax and value added tax arrears
Applications from enterprises that have not paid taxes, duties or withholding tax which fell due for payment before 29 February 2020 will be rejected.
Enterprises which have an agreement concerning partial payments or arrears must clear the arrears before they can reapply. It must be assumed that it can take up to fourteen days from payment until we receive updated information from the Norwegian Tax Administration.
Lack of documentation for application previously submitted to the compensation scheme for enterprises with a large decrease in turnover or the compensation scheme for expenses relating to entry quarantine
Applications from enterprises that failed to submit requested documentation in connection with previous applications for compensation for enterprises with a large decrease or the compensation scheme for expenses relating to entry quarantine will be rejected.
If an enterprise has had an application rejected due to insufficient documentation, it must submit the requested documentation and have it approved before it submits a new application.
Failure to submit tax return for wealth and income tax for 2019
Applications from enterprises that have not submitted a tax return for wealth and income tax for 2019 (applicable to enterprises established during or before 2019) will be rejected.
The deadline for submitting the tax return for self-employed persons for 2019 was 30 August 2020. Enterprises which submitted their tax return after the deadline, but before a decision concerning discretionary assessment is made (in November 2020) will be deemed to have submitted their tax return. A tax return may also be considered to have been submitted following a discretionary assessment if the new tax assessment is based on the tax return.
