The scheme is financed by an annual fee paid by the building and construction industry. The fee is granted in the Regulations on Administrative Arrangements on the Working Environment Act section 14-2.
The scheme covers all businesses that operate in the building and construction industry, cf. Regulations on organization, management and participation, scope 5-1. Definitions of building and construction activities can be found in § 1-4, section 5, and Statistics Norway's NACE Standard NACE codes 41, 42 and 43.
Visma Collectors AS administers the fee collection, debt collection and customer service in connection with the collection of the annual fee paid to the fund.
The fee is pre-calculated by the fund's secretariat and all claims are sent out with amount.
Calculation of fee is done in the following ways:
- For individual companies without employees, the fee is NOK 250.
- For enterprises that has started this year, the fee is NOK 250.
- For enterprises with employees, the fee is calculated on the basis of last year's salary expenses. Salary expenses are retrieved from Proff's web sites. Search your enterprise with organization number and see under account, column of only salary. From payroll expenses, 30% is deducted for administration and non-construction activities. The fee is 0.02% of this amount.
All enterprises will receive information about estimated fee amounts by e-mail or letter, so that it will be possible to change the actual payroll information before final fee claims are issued.
- For other enterprises with more employees, where the secretariat lacks information about salary expenses, the fee is calculated on the basis of the number of employees or from last year's paid fee.
However, if the amount of the fee is less than NOK 250, the minimum amount of NOK 250 is to be paid.
If the calculated fee does not match the company's own numbers, this can be corrected via ITX Norway's web pages, here.
The salarybase can be changed. It shall consist of salary expenses for employees performing construction work. The fee is 0.02% of this. In addition, a comment must be placed on why the salary base is changed. Remember to press save!
