In addition to the legislative changes, there are constant developments within the administrative practice and court practice, especially within the area of transfer pricing.

'A Guide to Norwegian Petroleum Taxation' is aimed at companies involved in oil and gas extraction activities (E&P), for service providers to the Norwegian E&P companies, and for others taking interest in taxation of natural resources.

However, the book also covers certain key elements of the general Norwegian tax legislation as well as a very brief overview of the Petroleum law.
