Your employee who has been hired out to work in Denmark must pay tax in Denmark. Your Danish client must take care of reporting and paying the tax to the Danish Tax Agency (Skattestyrelsen).

Every month you must provide your client with information on your employe's salary/wage in order to enable the client to calculate the employee's gross income and tax.

 You must send the following information to the Danish client:

  • The employee's name, address and date of birth
  • The employee's payslips and other information on the gross income. The gross income is the sum of
    • Salaries/wages, bonuses, commissions, etc., including
        • income during time off in lieu relating to work performed in Denmark
        • holiday pay earned in Denmark
    • travelling and transport allowances
    • value of free food and accommodation
    • other kinds of taxable fringe benefits

When your client pays the bill, the employee tax will be withheld and paid to the Tax Agency. You must settle the tax with the employee when paying the salaries/wages.

The following year you will receive a statement of Danish taxes paid, which you must pass on to the employee, enabling him or her to obtain tax relief in the home country.
