Help for entrepreneurs
The information pages 'Start and Run a Business' opened in November 2011, and quickly attracted heavy traffic. Last year, users clicked on these pages as many as 3.9 million times.
The pages provide information and support for people who plan to start a business, and most of the traffic concerns topics relating to the start-up phase. Here, new business owners can find out how to prepare for start-up, choose which form of incorporation to go for and register the enterprise. Many also want information about the rest of the process as well, however, and find topics relating to the actual running of a business.
Downloading document templates was one of the most popular services on 'Start and Run a Business' in 2012. These templates concern a number of different areas that are important in relation to running a business, such as key financial figures, business plans, shareholder agreements, job descriptions and how to conduct a job interview. Everyone can download these templates and use them in the day-to-day running of their business.
'Start and Run a Business' is a collaboration between several different agencies. The Norwegian Tax Administration and the Norwegian Labour and Welfare Administration (NAV), among others, post information on these pages.
