Debt (arrears)

If you have received a letter from SKAT advising you that we will collect your debt, you need to pay this debt or contact us on +45 70 15 73 04. You can also call us if you need an overview of your debt to SKAT.

We have discontinued the automated debt collection via our Central Debt Collection System (EFI). As a result, the debt collection process is currently handled manually.

In this connection, the Danish Parliament has agreed on extending the period of debt collecting by changing the limitation rules. This means that the limitation period for debt to be collected will not begin until 20 November 2018 irrespective of when the debt was incurred.

The Danish Parliament has also agreed that from 2 February 2017 the municipalities will collect debt related to property taxes and other fees and taxes relating to a property (priority claims). However, priority claims which has been transferred for collection by SKAT before 2 February 2017 will be collected by SKAT.

For further legal information, please see SKAT's legal guide. Note that the guide is only available in Danish.
