The tax agreement for those who have worked outside Norway
We remind you that those who have worked outside Norway in 2022 and who have paid a higher tax abroad than they otherwise would have paid to the Norwegian tax, can now make use of the Tax Agreement as described in the following protocols from 2022:
Reacher rigmove to DK.
Intrepid stacking in DK.
Invincible yardstay & stacking in DK.
Invincible rigmove from Grenaa to Norway.
Intrepid rigmove to UK.
If you wish to make use of this offer, KPMG will, in agreement with the company, make the calculations, but you yourself are responsible for settling your tax with the countries where you have worked and are thus liable to tax, and based on this document that you have paid a higher tax abroad than if you had worked similarly in Norway.
You must submit your completed annual tax returns in both countries to which you have paid tax, and for the Danes it may also be necessary to submit the spouse's annual tax return, in the event that the spouse has lost tax deductions as a result.
You must also comply with the deadlines that are set.
We are aware that it is a lot of work and challenges to be taxed in two countries and to have everything documented and submitted to KPMG. But this deal is, despite all the trouble, quite good and quite unique. Compensation for higher paid tax abroad is not something that we are entitled to in the collective agreement, and we are not aware of any other clubs that have negotiated a similar agreement in the NR area. We made the Tax Agreement for the first time in 2011 for those who accompanied Guardian to Hirtshals , and many have subsequently made use of it. The agreement has been corrected many times and appears today in a more simplified version. Below is the text from the Grenaa protocol.
The company will acknowledge changes in personal tax conditions for employees resulting from short assignments at the end of the stay at shipyard in Grenaa, Denmark. As regards to personal tax, the individual employee shall not be put in a worse position than if he or she worked in Norway. If it turns out that MDN employees who have worked in Grenaa or participated in the sea passage will be tax liable to Denmark, they will be offered tax assistance. This is subject to the necessary information and documents being shared with the consultant MDN uses to make the necessary calculations in this connection, within the set deadlines.
Tax across national borders is not always that simple, and we often experience that rules change and things do not go quite as planned. Therefore, if someone experiences something that may be valuable for other members to know, we would very much like to hear about it and share it here, so others can benefit from your experience.
