Payment of hourly pay and fees


Hourly-paid employees

  • Hourly-paid employees are remunerated in relation to the contracted number of hours and to approved time sheets if relevant.
    • The entries on a time sheet shall only refer to one calendar month so that pension rights can be handled correctly.
    • The entries on a time sheet shall only refer to work carried out for one employer. If you have worked for different UiO units within one month, a specific time sheet needs to be completed for each unit.
    • Time sheets are to be submitted to the responsible work manager at the beginning of the following calendar month.
  • Tax deduction is made on the basis of the tax deduction card that UiO obtains from the Norwegian Tax Administration. Those who have not applied for a tax deduction card will be subject to a 50 % advance tax deduction.
  • Payment is made centrally by the Payroll Office based on wage-payment vouchers submitted by the unit that will pay for the work.
  • Payment is normally made in the middle and at the end of the month, see payroll schedule.
  • Holiday pay is paid in June of the following calendar year.

Non-employee workers

  • Fees for non-employee workers are paid in accordance with the assignment contract and approved completion of the assignment.
  • Tax deduction is made on the basis of the tax deduction card that UiO obtains from the Norwegian Tax Administration. Those who have not applied for a tax deduction card will be subject to a 50 % advance tax deduction.
  • Payment is made centrally by the Payroll Office based on wage-payment vouchers submitted by the unit that will pay for the work.
  • Payment is normally made in the middle and at the end of the month, see payroll schedule.

Self-employed persons

  • Fees for self-employed persons are paid in accordance with the contract entered into and approved completion of the assignment.
  • No tax is deducted. UiO reports income from self-employment to the tax authorities annually.
  • Payment is made centrally by the Accounts Office on the basis of invoices approved in the purchasing and accounting system.

  • Self-employed persons are not entitled to holiday pay.

Payments abroad

  • If payment is to be sent to another country, a special payment details form (pdf) must be submitted.
  • Tax liability will depend on whether the work has been carried out in Norway or abroad. Guest lectures held in Norway by visiting researchers can normally be remunerated without tax deduction if the period of stay in Norway does not exceed two days.
  • Payments to overseas bank accounts using IBAN and SWIFT/BIC addresses take 2-3 days longer than payments within Norway. Payments to the USA and other countries outside Europe may take considerably longer.
