The government proposes to increase the effective base tax rate on land leases for hydropower from 37% to 45% starting in 2022, inclusive.

The government considers it reasonable that most of the hydropower revenue will go to the budget. The government considered that the increase in the base rate will ensure an increase in state budget revenues for many years to come.

“Under the current tax rules, income from land rental tax is estimated at about NOK 53 billion in 2022, which is about NOK 45 billion more than the 2010-2021 average,” the report said.
