What is Altinn?
Altinn is an internet portal for digital dialogue between businesses, private individuals and public agencies. Altinn is also a technical platform that government bodies can use to develop digital services.
Altinn is developed, operated and managed by the Altinn co-operation, that consists of multiple government bodies. The Brønnøysund Register Center manages the technical solution on behalf of the co-operation, and decides how it should be developed.
Today Altinn is a well established and comprehensive platform, and shows great growth both in data volumes, number of connected government bodies and number of digital services. It is constantly being developed with both improvements of current and introduction of new functionality. This functionality is described more in-depth (in Norwegian) in Altinn Digital
Altinn also has a lot of useful information for those who wish to establish and run businesses in Norway, shown under Start and run business. These pages also contain a list of business support schemes.
