About the country
Norway is a country with 5 million inhabitants, which is part of the European Economic Area (EEA). The country is one of the richest in the world: According to per capita gross domestic product measurements, it is the fourth most affluent country in the world (after Qatar, Luxembourg and Singapore), but ahead of the United States of America or Germany. The state has no net debt, but on the contrary manages one of the largest pension funds worldwide, which is funded by profits from the exploitation of mineral resources. Norway, as one of the few countries in the world, holds a credit rating of AAA, the highest possible, from all three major credit rating agencies.
Deposits are 100% secured by the Norwegian Deposit Guarantee Fund up to an amount of NOK 2,000,000 (approximately EUR 220,000 as of Nov 2016). This protection also applies to investors from outside of Norway. For more information on the Deposit Guarantee in Norway, please visit: http://www.bankenessikringsfond.no/en/Main/Home/.
All Member States of the European Economic Area have agreed on the need to improve their protection of savers and therefore to harmonise the minimum requirements for national deposit insurance schemes (Directives 94/19 / EC, 2009/14 / EC and 2014/49 / EU). Among other things, the payment modalities and the payout period are uniformly regulated at a high standard throughout the European Union and the European Economic Area.
Tax process and documents
In Norway, no withholding tax is levied on interest income for non-resident individuals, so the interest is paid without any deductions. However, your interest rate gains may be subject to taxation in your home country.
According to Norwegian law, the original term deposit application is required, as well as a copy of a valid photo ID.
