Exemption from submitting information

If you no long meet the conditions for exemption, but continue to have the life insurance/pension scheme, please let us know.

If you have funeral insurance or similar where the returns are always negative, and one year’s contributions are used to cover the payments made during that same year, with the effect that the scheme has no capital appreciation, you don’t have to submit information to us.

If your life insurance or pension scheme is cancelled

Please inform us if your life insurance/pension scheme is cancelled. Enclose documentation for the cancellation.

It is important that you comply with your duty of declaration. If you don’t, we may impose default fines on you, see section 72(2) of the Danish Tax Control Act (Skattekontrolloven) or terminate your life insurance or pension scheme.

Legislation and statutory rules

The duty of declaration is legally based on sections 16-18 of the Danish Tax Control Act.
