Consequences of defaulting on payment
If an invoice has not been paid by the due date, interest on arrears will accrue as well as late fees according to the Norwegian Act relating to Interest on Overdue Payments and the Norwegian Debt Collection Act. At the same time you will be given a final notice before you loose access to Norid's systems.
If the amount owed has not been paid in its entirety by the expiry of the deadline in the notice, Norid will block your system access without further notice. This means among other things that you no longer will be able to order or extend domain name subscriptions. Norid will also pass the case to debt collection. In order to have system access restored, you must pay Norid’s claim in its entirety and an administrative fee of NOK 6,250 incl. VAT.

Annual registrar fee
As a registrar you must pay for at least 100 domain name subscriptions each calendar year.
If you do not order or extend 100 domain name subscriptions in the first full calendar year or in a later calendar years you must pay an annual registrar fee.
The annual registrar fee corresponds to the difference between the sum of 100 subscription fees and the amount that you have actually paid in fees for ordered and extended domain name subscriptions during the calendar year.
This does not apply for year when the registrar agreement is entered into.
