The court agrees with the state’s argument that Mowi cannot sue after a decision in the Storting, but that it must wait until they have a concrete tax decision to complain about, writes NRK.

The court’s decision can be appealed to the Court of Appeal, and the parties have a deadline of one month.

– The district court has, in the state’s view, reached the right result. If this decision is upheld, it means that the case will stop in the legal system for the time being, says government lawyer Fredrik Sejersted to NRK.

Mowi has claimed that the salmon tax is designed in such a way that it affects large companies unfairly.

Last year, the Storting adopted a basic rent tax on aquaculture of 25 per cent with effect from 1 January 2023.
