Norway's Ministry of Finance has published a consultation document on proposed amendments to the country's income expense deduction restrictions. Under current rules, the deduction of interest on related-party debt is limited to 25% of a taxpayer's EBITDA with an annual de minimis threshold of NOK 5 million for deduction without restriction. The proposed changes include:
The Ministry intends to maintain the current EBITDA percentage (25%) and the 10-year carry forward of excess interest expense. Further the Ministry intends to maintain the exemptions for companies subject to special rules, such as financial institutions and petroleum companies.
