Can I choose the currency for the invoice?

No, the invoice will be sent in Norwegian crowns.

Why is the VAT 25 %?

As the event is held in Norway, the taxation in Norway will be applied. The VAT in Norway is 25%.

What is a KID number and how it works?

A KID number is used by Norwegian companies in their invoicing process to keep track of transactions. It identifies a customer and an invoice, regardless of who pays the bill. It can be from 2 and up to 25 digits in length. Banks in Norway keep a record of a KID number for each registered transaction. A KID number associated with a purchase will be used by the person responsible for paying the invoice. Enter the KID number from your invoice into your invoicing system and it should automatically identify your exact order so you can pay it. For customers who do not require a KID number, the invoice number can be used instead. You don’t need a KID number to make a purchase.

What payment methods do you offer?

You can choose between printed invoice and email invoice. Please provide us always with the correct invoicing information. For Russian customers, we also offer Russian invoice in rubles and with the needed documents. Credit card payment methods are coming up soon.
