    My name is Synnøve Sørdal and I work at Magnus Legal in Bergen. I started as a tax lawyer at the Norwegian Tax Authorities in 2005, and since 2008 I have worked as a lawyer, assisting smaller and larger companies with various VAT related issues. VAT regulations can sometimes be complicated and are frequently changing, and this area of law affects the daily, financial situation of our clients. My goal is to share news and views about what is happening in VAT. I welcome and value your opinion on what I share on this blog!
