Deduction for travel expenses

If your employer does not cover your work-related travel expenses or pays you a tax-free travel allowance, you are entitled to deduct expenses for food, accommodation and petty acquisitions.

You may either apply the standard rates or deduct your documented expenses. The actual deduction is approx. 26%. So if your travel deduction amounts to DKK 3,000, you will save approx. DKK 780 in tax.

  •  Maximum deduction for travel expenses in 2024 is DKK 31,600 (DKK 30,500 in 2023)
