Norway SAF-T Financial
SAF-T Financial is a standard format used in the exchange of accounting data. SAF-T, or Standard Audit File-Tax, is the result of a joint development collaboration between the business community, the accounting sector and the Norwegian Tax Administration, based on a recommendation by the OECD.
The Ministry of Finance has amended the Bookkeeping Regulation so that bookkeepers who have their bookkeeping available electronically must disclose accounting data in a given standard format. The new sections 7-8 comes into force in the first period with financial reporting starting on the 1st of January 2020 or later. Until then, the use of the SAF-T scheme will be voluntary. Businesses with less than NOK 5 million in turnover are exempt from this requirement. However, if these businesses do have bookkeeping information electronically available, the requirement will apply to them. The enterprises with a bookkeeping obligation are only obliged to submit accounting information in SAF-T format when in relation to a potential control, and upon request by The Tax Administration.
The introduction of the standard format will make it easier for those obliged to keep accounts to submit accounting records to public authorities upon request. It will also be easier to perform internal control audits and analyze or share data with others. The obligation to store the accounting information will also be easier because the SAF-T files will meet the requirements for storing this type of accounting information, presumed that the SAF-T file can produce all obligatory financial reports.
