And and interesting and positive statement from Head of Taxation Department:

Quote
– Dette er en ny måte å tenke verdier på, sier skattedirektør Hans Christian Holte til NRK.

Dersom man tjener penger på investering i nettvaluta, skal man skatte 28 prosent av gevinsten, og omsetning av bitcoin skal man betale moms av, opplyser skattedirektøren.

– Hvilke utfordringer byr dette på?

– Dette er et ektefødt barn av en digital verden. Vi må ta våre lover og regler, og se hvordan disse skal anvendes på dette helt nye området, svarer skattedirektøren.

- This is a new way of thinking about values, says head of Tax Department Hans Christian Holte to  NRK.
Provided one earns money from investment in digital cirrencies, one has to pay 28% of the income in taxes, while circulation of bitcoins is subject to VAT taxation, informs Head of the department.

- What kind of challenges does this induce?

- This is a legitimate child of the digital world. We must take our laws and rules and see how they can be applied to this completely new area, is the response of the Head of the Department.
