In 1999 Syse Data was converted to a limited liability company, and has since been trading under the name Syse Data AS. As the names are so similar, searches for our company in the official Norwegian registry of just-about-anything (Brønnøysundregistrene) often resulted in potential customers looking up the wrong company. To prevent this confusion we recently changed the name of the old (non-LLC) company, and figured we’d use the opportunity for some harmless – or so we thought – fun.
The old company was renamed to:
';UPDATE TAXRATE SET RATE = 0 WHERE NAME = 'EDVIN SYSE'
Apparently, the tax authorities noticed. You’ll need to read their page for more details. (Scroll down for English.)
As did Justin Mason.
