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.

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.
