Exporting to Norway


Am I right in thinking export UK to Norway that duty is payable 25% to a possible distributor as Norway is outside EU.

Also if you do trade shows in Norway and the bil has VAT on you have to pay?
thanks in advance.

we are looking to export our chainsaw sawhorse.


Norway is outside of the EU so you could be liable to import duty. If this is for a trade show and reyturn to the UK after the exhibition, then it may be possible to get what is called an ATA Carnet which will allow for the temporary export from the UK, temporary import in Norway and re-import back in to the UK and have the duty and VAT suspended and not paid, if the conditions of the carnet are met in full. You should discuss that with local Chamber of Commerce or the third party (logistics provider) you are using to take the goods to Norway.


Hello Steve,
In order to work out the percentage of import duty applicable you have to work out the tariff code for your product. See https://www.gov.uk/trade-tariff/sections

You can then look up the requirements for Norway on http://madb.europa.eu/madb/datasetPreviewFormATpubli.htm?datacat_id=AT&from=publi

The origin of the product can make a big difference to the duty payable so it is important to take that into account as well as it can reduce the import duty to zero in some cases.

If you need any further information don’t hesitate to ask either through this site or directly.

Hi Susan
Yes we have found the Tariff we are non descript metal items! These have no duty tariff, just the VAT @ 25%
We have been selling to BENELUX and Norway is a great place to us so. I’m now just going through the looking and sorting out Norway!

I’ve found out More about Countries in the EU but outside at the same time! I like the style of Norway.

Thank you both for the answers
