After the agreement between the Norwegian labor organizations and the Norwegian government on new travel rates and regulations 22. June, Simployer is now updated with these changes.


This is changed:


For domestic travels:

  • The rate for kilometer allowance is reduced from 4,10 NOK per km to 3,90 NOK per km. This is now independent of car type and annual travel length. The former 10000km rate and separate rate for electric car is removed.
  • For employees filling fuel where toll cost is included in fuel cost, a 0,10 NOK addition allowance is given. Earlier this was only give for employees with work place in Tromsø.
  • Dietery allowance for travels longer than 12 hours with accommodation has been raised from 733 NOK to 754 NOK.
  • Dietery allowance for travels longer than 12 hours without accommodation has been raised from 537 NOK to 552 NOK.
  • Dietery allowance for travels from 6 hours to 12 hours is raised  from 289 NOK to 297 NOK.
  • For travels lasting longer than 24 hours, the hours not included in full 24h is given 297 NOK for 6 to 12 hours and 552 for 12 hours and longer.
  • The med deductions is set to 20% for breakfast, 30% for lunch and 50% for dinner, but rate used is the rate for travels longer than 12 hours (754NOK). This is done even though you have the right to use one of the other rates.
  • The upper limit for accommodation allowance (Hotels et.c) is now removed (earlier 1800 NOK).


For travels abroad:

  • Usage of own car is given same allowance as domestic travel. This means the rates are changed the same way as on domestic travels.
  • Allowance for travels from 6 to 12 hours is reduced from being 2/3 of the country rate, to now being 50% of the country rate. For travels longer than 12 hours you are given full country rate (earlier this was given from 6 hours).
  • Meal deductions is changed from 10% to 20 % for breakfast, 40% to 30% for lunch, but dinner is still 50%. The deduction rate used is always the from 12 hour rate.
  • Compensation allowance is raised from 491 NOK per 24h to 515 NOK per 24h.

New rates is added. You can find them here.


Travels with start before 22. June, and return date after 22. June

The system takes in to consideration  the rates and regulation on the date that is calculated. This way the old rates and regulations is used until the end of 21. June, and the new is used after. There is no problem adding travels that starts before 21. And ends after.

If you add driving wich passes midnight the 21. June (ex. Start driving at 10pm 21. June, and ends 3am 22. June), the rate is picked from when the driving started.

Same goes for dietery allowance passing midnight, here we use the rate for when the dietery 24h period starts.
