The accounting profession in the Nordic countries

  • The accounting profession is quite similar in Finland, Sweden and Norway. In these three countries, accounting and auditing are recognized as separate professions. A person or company is therefore not permitted to perform both accounting and auditing services for the same client.  The law regulates the accounting profession in all the Nordic countries, but only Norway has a legal framework that regulates the profession.
