VAT return with direct submission to Altinn
This article provides information about the VAT return with direct submission to Altinn feature in Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance. This feature can be used to submit value-added tax (VAT) returns in Norway.
In Skatteinfo no. 11/2020, the Norwegian Tax Administration introduced a requirement for VAT return reporting that includes direct digital submission from accounting systems to the Altinn tax portal. This digital submission process replaces the manual process for filing VAT returns for periods as of January 1, 2022. For more information about VAT returns with direct submission to Altinn, see Mva-meldingen.
The VAT return with direct submission to Altinn feature in Finance supports filing a VAT return for multiple VAT registrations and for companies that report as a VAT group in the same system database.

When you enable Finance to interoperate with the Norwegian Tax Administration's VAT application programming interface (API), both customer content and personal data will be shared with the Norwegian Tax Administration as part of the submission of your VAT declaration. This information might include the name of the individual who submitted the VAT declaration. To learn more about the kinds of information that are included in your submission, you can view the Norwegian Tax Administration's requirements. A system administrator can disable the interoperation with the Norwegian Tax Administration's web service in Finance by going to Tax > Setup > Electronic Messages.
