Contribution rates

For every amount paid to ATP that is equal to a full-rate ATP contribution (DKK 284.00 per month) you must also pay DKK 142,75 per quarter (2022) in FIB contribution.

You can see the distribution of the contribution below, as well as see the contribution rates for 2022 and previous years.

Calculation

Samlet Betaling will automatically calculate your Finansieringsbidrag on the basis of the ATP contributions you are paying for your employees.

Every quarter, Samlet Betaling receives information on the total ATP contributions that you have paid into the ATP Livslang Pension.

The ATP contributions paid are converted to a number of full-time employees by dividing the total contributions paid by the ATP contribution rate that applies for the company.

The number of full-time employees is multiplied by the relevant rate for the Finansieringsbidrag.

Example quarterly contribution:

Paid ATP contribution: DKK 5,000 / applicable ATP rate: DKK 852

= 5.87 full-time employees.
