KPMG has the assignment of reviewing the tax return of everyone who has worked in the UK and DK in accordance with the Tax Agreement and in accordance with our list of authorization. The authorization list is a complete overview of all our employees in Norway who have crossed the borderline of the Norwegian continental shelf with one of our mobile offshore units. Thus, they have the complete overview of who is entitled to the tax deduction related to spouses. KPMG have submitted an overview and we are paying according to KPMG's calculations.
