Financing of religions

Financing of religious denominations

There is no church tax in Norway, but registered faith and worldview communities receive financial support on an annual basis. The financing of religious denominations is regulated in the Constitution § 16, and more specifically by the Act on Faith Communities (2020). Financing is available both to religious and non-religious communities. It is calculated for each community as a per capita compensation, on the basis of the budgetary support received by the Church of Norway.
