Apply for authorisation or notify a foreign investment or a special financial agreement to the Danish Business Authority.
To submit an application or notification to the Danish Business Authority, download and fill in the application/notification form and upload it together with all relevant documents via the application portal.
In connection with application or notification, a number of questions must be answered regarding the respective investment or agreement, including:
- The nature of the investment or the agreement,
- The investor's/service provider's ownership
- The target company's business.
In addition, whether the application concerns an investment, a greenfield investment or a special financial agreement must be stated, and whether the investment/agreement falls under the rules demanding prior authorization or the rules on voluntary notification.
Investments and special financial agreements covered by the permit requirement that is implemented on or after 1 September 2021 must be submitted to the Danish Business Authority.
What documents do I need to submit?
In addition to answering a number of questions, you will also have to upload certain documents during the application process:
- An application/notification form (download the application/notification form here).
- A chart that displays the ownership structure of the investor/service provider.
- A chart that displays the ownership structure of the target company prior to the investment/agreement.
- A chart that displays the ownership structure of the target company after the investment i.e. how the target is incorporated (this only applies to investments).
- An EU-notification form (if the transaction is an application or notification concerning an investment pursuant to S 5 or S 10 of the Danish Act on screening of certain foreign direct investments) (download the EU-notification form here).
- Contracts, declarations of intent or other documents confirming the validity of the transaction (can be uploaded under "additional relevant information").
