    Default Contracting in Norway - what rate?

    I have had a few calls about some interesting contracts in Norway and in Sweden in the last couple of weeks - seems a lot going on in Norway.

    Does anyone have any experience of contracting out there, how much it costs to live, etc, etc?

    I hear that Norway is very expensive and the Krona is very high to the Pound. The sort of roles I do in the UK are offering 400 to 500 per day at the moment so how much more would you have to charge to make Norway cost-effective to go?

    Thanks for any opinions.

    Wrong place to post this in. Should have posted this in Business Contracts.

    The roles with rates on them for Sweden seem to be at the £50 an hour mark. I think the rate is purposely put on them for that reason.

    I found this for Norway - Cost of Living in Norway. Prices in Norway.

    A loaf of bread £2 A can of coke £2

    Thanks - that is a useful site and more or less confirmed what I had been told. Yes, it is ruddy expensive. The Krona is so strong at the moment but still the prices are ridiculous - you would have to earn twice your UK rate just to more or less break even.

    Lived in Bergen for over a year PM me if you need specific details.

    It's really is not that anymore expensive than people make out. Petrol was cheaper than the UK. Eating/drinking out is expensive, hence you don't seen English town centres scenes every night.

    The standard of living/public services is the best I've seen anywhere, I'd pay the extra tax if I thought we'd receive the same level of service on our own country.

    When I was out there £1 = 10 Nok, I see that it's still the same more or less.
