Norway is located in northwestern Europe with a population of 5.3 million and low unemployment rates. Norway’s economy benefits from oil and gas production, accounting for 20% of the GDP. Norway is ranked as one of the least corrupt countries, and in the top 10 for best countries for business. The currency is the Norwegian Krone.

Employees must be registered in a mandatory pension plan and be registered with the local National Insurance and Directorate of Labour. Foreign nationals will need a D number to begin work. Corporate bank accounts must be opened with at least 30,000 Krone, although no minimum is required for sole proprietorship.
