How to document your income from the year 2018


If the UDI has received information from the Tax authorities about the reference person's income for the year 2018, we will look at the 2018 income, not the 2017 income, when we process your application.

Published: 08.01.2015 - Last changed: 11.01.2019

The UDI collects information about the income you as a reference person have directly from the Tax authorities.

The information we collect is:

  • information about your salary last year
  • information about money you have received from NAV
  • information about your salary per month this year (statement of pay and tax deductions / lønns- og trekkoppgave)

Information for reference persons who receive statements of pay and tax deductions

If you receive a statement of pay and tax deductions from your employer, the UDI will collect this statement from the Tax authorities.

Please note that you should not send in your statement of pay and tax deductions yourself, you must wait until the UDI can get it electronically from the Tax authorities.

If your statement of pay and tax deductions cannot be accessed when we process the application, we will look at the 2017 income instead of the 2018 income. Read about the income requirement.

Information for the reference persons who do not receive statements of pay and tax deductions (self-employed persons)

If you do not get a statement of pay and tax deductions, for example because you are self-employed, the UDI will not have access to information about your 2018 income until the tax assessment notice is available. Your tax assessment notice will be available from August at the earliest. If you would like us to assess your 2018 income before that, you must send us your tax return for 2018 with all the necessary supporting documents (income statement etc.).

Until you have sent us your 2018 tax return or your tax assessment notice for 2018 is available, we will look at your 2017 income when we assess whether you fulfil the previous income requirement. Read about the income requirement.
