Foreign companies supplying services or products in Denmark must be registered with the Danish Business Authority.
Foreign companies without an establishment in Denmark that pay VAT on goods and services in Denmark are also obliged to register (see section 47(1) of the Danish VAT Act (Momsloven)).
Non-Danish companies are not covered by the revenue threshold of DKK 50,000 and are therefore obliged to register from the day they start up activities in Denmark.
Companies registered in the EU, the Faroe Islands, Greenland, Iceland and Norway
Companies registered in the EU can arrange for registration through a non-liable representative if they have a non-fixed establishment in Denmark. This can be done by entering the name of the representative in the form and signing section 16. The representative can be a Danish company or a Danish private individual.
Companies with a fixed establishment in Denmark do not need to register through a non-liable representative.
Provided that these conditions are fulfilled, a central business registration number (CVR) will be assigned to the company. Alternatively, a VAT number ( SE ) may be assigned by the Danish Tax Agency.
CVR numbers are assigned by the Danish Business Authority upon approval by the Danish Tax Agency. In certain cases, the Danish Tax Agency can refuse to approve the registration.
Companies registered outside the EU
Non-Danish companies engaged in taxable activities must be registered through a liable representative if established in third countries with which Denmark has not entered into an agreement on mutual assistance modelled on the EU rules.
The representative can be a Danish company or a Danish private individual.
When must the Danish Business Authority receive the application?
The Danish Business Authority must receive the application at least eight days prior to the commencement of taxable activities in Denmark.
When can you expect to receive a CVR number?
