PR(06)62: The EFTA Surveillance Authority authorises alterations to the Norwegian tax refund scheme for seafarers aboard vessels in the Norwegian Ordinary Shipping Register (NOR) for the period 1 January 2007 until 1 January 2016

19.12.2006

The EFTA Surveillance Authority has authorised today two alterations to the Norwegian tax refund scheme for seafarers aboard vessels registered in the Norwegian ordinary shipping register (NOR). Shipowners of cargo ships, well boats, passenger ships, towage tugs and vessels active in petroleum-related activities registered in the Norwegian Ordinary Shipping Register (NOR) will be able to obtain reimbursement for the collected seafarers’ income tax and social security contributions as well as social security contributions paid by the employer. Regarding passenger ships in international trade registered in NOR, the previous scheme covered the whole crew but under the amended scheme reimbursement is only possible for safety crew aboard according to the vessel alarm instructions.
