What is the shareholder register?
The shareholder register contains information about the stock companies, and what they themselves have reported by 31 December of the previous year. This also includes information on, among other things, dividend payments and capital increases in the companies.
The register provides Skatteetaten (tax agency) with a basis for sending out shares and equity certificates to shareholders, and in that sense is also important for the company's investors. This helps them submit the correct tax return. The information in the shareholder register is used to calculate, among other things, dividend tax, tax on gains from the sale of shares and wealth tax.
