As Denmark signed the international agreement on automatic exchange of Country-by-Country Reports (CbC Reports), Danish businesses that are either the ultimate parent company or the surrogate parent entity of a group subject to CbC reporting should submit a CbC report to the Danish Tax Agency (Skattestyrelsen). Denmark has been a part to this agreement since 2016.

The report should be submitted electronically to the Danish Tax Agency (Skattestyrelsen) in a fixed XML file format according to the OECD guidelines.

Please see the CbC reporting guide of the Danish Tax Agency (please note that this guide is in Danish) and the guide on XML file format ( which is also a user guide to businesses subject to Country-by-Country reporting.

How do you submit the report?

Please submit the report by logging on to E-tax for businesses (TastSelv Erhverv) -> 'Skat' (Tax) -> 'Land for land' (CbC) (Country-by-Country (CbC))

Please see Notification of CbC Reporting below for information on submitting notification of CbC reporting.

New reporting form from 4 February 2021

The OECD has published a new reporting form for CbC reporting. This means that as from 4 February 2021, you need to use the new CbC 2.0 form when reporting. This also applies when you report for previous years and when you correct or delete previous reports.

There are a few new features you should be aware of when you use the new CbC 2.0 form. A ReportingPeriod element has been added under ReportingEntity where you must enter the start and finish date for the period. In addition, it is recommended that you also fill in some optional elements that have been added.

Read more about the new CbC 2.0 form in the OECD’s CbC 2.0 User Guide ( or in our CbC reporting guide (in Danish).
