If more than one person refers the same candidate and such candidate is hired by SoftwareONE, the external referral bonus will be awarded to the first referrer, based upon SoftwareONE’s time stamp for the referral.

Payment Terms

If you are eligible to participate in the program, SoftwareONE will pay you an external referral payment up to kr 9,500* for each candidate that is hired by SoftwareONE and such referred employee upon satisfaction of the following conditions:

  • The candidate acknowledges that they were referred by you; and
  • The candidate completes 3 months of continuous, active employment with SoftwareONE.

* This amount differs by country and currency. The respective amount of the external referral payment is based on the country of the respective job vacancy. To view the participating countries please see here.

If the referral is successfully hired by SoftwareONE, you must complete any required documentation and hand in your personal number once the payment process starts. The personal information given to us by you will only be used by the Finance / bookkeeping department and Skatteetaten and will be kept according for a certain time to the law in this country.

Payment of the external referral payment will happen within 2 months after the minimum recruitment period of 3 months, provided the required documentation is fully provided to SoftwareONE.

Tax Liability

The external referral amount mentioned is gross. The referral bonus may be subject to income tax or any other tax. In Norway the payment will be taxed by us and the taxed amount will be payed to Skatteetaten, as it needs to be handled like a salary (like a honorar).  Therefore you will be asked to provide personal information once the payment process starts.
