For enterprises with a payroll system

If you or your accountant has a system which is fully integrated, the a-melding is submitted from the system. This service is intended for enterprises with a payroll system or other system which is partially integrated with Altinn. 

Start service

From January 2020, it will be mandatory to use the organisation number for an enterprise/sub-entity when submitting a-meldings containing information on employment circumstances.

The Brønnøysund Register Centre registers enterprises with a main entity (this is the same as the declarant in the a-melding) and an enterprise/sub-entity. If you report employment of the type 'ordinary', 'maritime' or 'freelancers, contractors and fee recipients', from 2020, you'll always have to link the employment to the enterprise/sub-entity number.

About this form

See the a-melding guide on skatteetaten.no.

This service is used to provide information on employment circumstances, salary payments, benefits and payroll withholding tax deductions for your employees, in addition to employer's National Insurance contributions.

Monthly. Deadline the 5th of each month. If the 5th is a Saturday, Sunday or holiday, the deadline is the next working day.

Remember to report the status of employment relationships every month. You must report this status even if you do not pay any salary.

Remember to check the feedback.

Every time you submit an a-melding, we carry out automatic checks on it. The feedback you receive states what you have reported and any errors which you must correct. The feedback will also contain information on payments of employer's National Insurance contributions and payroll withholding tax, account number and KID number.

You will find the feedback (A03) in "Inbox" in Altinn.

Many systems which are fully integrated with Altinn show the feedback and any error messages (MAGNET/EDAG) directly in the system.

If you are obliged to submit the a-melding but fail to submit one or submit one which contains errors, you may have to pay an enforcement fine.

The presence of errors or omissions in information which you submit in the a-melding can have consequences for your employees. It can lead to errors in the tax return or erroneous payments from NAV. It is therefore important that you submit accurate information by the deadline for the month.

Remember to state the status of employment relationships every month, even if you do not pay any salary.
