What is a NUF?


The incorporation form that took Scandinavia by storm, the NUF gives you a Norwegian limited company with the same benefits and freedom as an AS company but without the initial cost. You get the same rights as a limited liability company but without the initial share capital!

NUF is the fastest growing incorporation form that has taken Norway by storm and which is only meant to grow even more. The registration process first starts with the establishment of an English limited liability company (Ltd) and is followed up by the incorporation of a Norwegian branch of this company. The company is officially an English company, but thanks to the freedom of establishment within the EU / EEA, you are guaranteed the same rights as a normal Norwegian company through the branch created.


The equal treatment we are talking about includes the below amongst other things:

  • Increased social rights
  • Exemption from auditing duty on turnover below NOK 5 million
  • No minimum share capital of NOK 30 000

NUF is a natural and accepted form of business in the European business registration industry. The NUF is ideal for companies which do not need to tie up share capital, companies that do not require a mandatory audit or companies that want to start a company which is easy to operate. An easy and affordable to start and run a business.

You get a Norwegian organization number and can register for VAT whilst hiring yourself as normal procedure.
