Concerted action against workplace crime brought 200 million NOK in taxes to the Treasury last year, according to preliminary figures.

The Labour Inspection, Nav, police and the tax administration in Oslo, Bergen and Stavanger initiated a closer cooperation in order to uncover undeclared employment, social security abuse and tax evasion in 2015, and this partnership has now yielded results,  Aftenposten writes.
– The interdepartmental cooperation means that we uncover more incidents of tax evasion and are better able to react to the offenders,  director Øivind Strømme in regional department of the Tax Administration says.
Various estimates indicate that the state loses between 110 and 420 billion annually from tax evasion.
