Danish tax and VAT

When you run a registered business, you have to make annual accounts and report VAT every quarter.

VAT registered companies have to submit their VAT accounting to the tax office while limited companies are also required submit their annual report to the Danish Business Authority.

VAT

VAT or moms in Danish is an indirect tax that you collect from your customers and send to the tax office. As a VAT registered company, you can also receive VAT (25%) from the stuff that you pay for your company that have VAT on the invoice.

If you have a turnover of less than DKK 50,000 in 12 months, you do not need to be a registered VAT company and get a CVR number. You can bill your customers for your services based on your CPR number.

Why TBA

What separates us from our competitors is that our services don’t end with the registration of your company. We offer a wide range of additional services others can’t or just won’t offer, such as lifetime free support.

Whilst most providers either specialise on personalized consultation at relatively high rates or run bulk registration factories without any support, we want to offer the positive aspects of both types.
