Why are there different numbers for companies and individuals?

The different forms of work result in different payout sums.
Below we go through each of the points in our overview so that there are no misunderstandings.

Amount incl. VAT
This is what your customer has to pay. The sum includes VAT and it’s this sum that your customer sees on the invoice.

VAT is a fee your customer usually has to pay when buying goods or services. You can read more about VAT here. VAT is usually 25%.
Company - It is your own responsibility to set aside VAT and pay this in accordance with the tax authorities' guidelines.

Dipps fee
Company - During a start-up period, this is set to 0 when using Dipps for companies. As the product develops, however, there will be a fee for the use of Dipps.
Individuals - We at Dipps charge an administration fee for the work we perform on your behalf. This includes the technical solution, deduction of tax and fees, reporting and payment of the mentioned taxes and fees among other things.

Employer's tax (Employer's national insurance contributions)
The employer's tax is a surcharge on the payout. Employer's national insurance contributions are taxes that are a part of financing the National Insurance scheme in Norway. The percentage varies between 0 and 14.1% based on where the company has its offices. Dipps has a registered address in Oslo where the fee is 14.1%.
Company - In some cases, employer's tax is not applicable. One of these cases are if the work is performed by a company. For you who use Dipps for your own ENK / AS, no employer's tax is therefore deducted. Note, however, that through your company you may end up in a position where you have to pay employer's tax.
Individuals - The employer's tax is calculated on the basis of gross payment. VAT and Dipps' administration fee is subtracted when calculating employer's tax. The employer's tax also gives you a number of social benefits.

Gross income
Company - This is in the invoice amount ex. VAT, minus a potential Dipps fee. In a start-up period, there are no costs in using Dipps for companies, but this is something that will change as the product develops.
Individuals - This is the total payment before we deduct tax. You can see how much tax is deducted in the section below.

Income tax
Company - For you who use Dipps for company, you are responsible for ensuring that the correct tax is paid on time. Therefore, the full amount will be transferred to you directly, and you will have to arrange the rest.
Individuals - Before we transfer the payment to you, we check with the tax authorities which tax rate you use. Once we get this information, we deduct tax and pay this to the tax authorities. If you want to change your tax rate, this is something you must do on the tax administration's website. We check this every month so that you have the opportunity to update your tax rate if you want to. For the overview we use 26% as an example.

Bank transfer
Company - This is the amount that comes into your account. Here it is important to note that it is you who is responsible for setting aside taxes and fees based on what will be relevant for you / your company.
