The deductions for your fees and contributions are automatically stated in your tax assessment notice.

  • 2018 and 2019: Maximum deduction for trade union fees DKK 6,000

See the deduction in your tax assessment notice

Correct field 458 or field 439 in your preliminary income assessment

The maximum deduction for trade union fees has been increased from DKK 3,000 to DKK 6,000 from 2015 onwards.

You will get the additional deduction at the end of the year, but if you want your deduction on a current basis during the year, you should change field 458 in your preliminary income assessment.

Please note that you can only get a deduction for your annual trade union fees, and you can deduct no more than DKK 6,000:

  • If for example you pay DKK 400 a month, you can deduct 12 x 400 = DKK 4,800.
  • If you pay more than DKK 500 a month, you should only enter DKK 6,000 in your preliminary income assessment.

You are entitled to a deduction for:

  • your regular trade union fee

  • additional strike fund fees if imposed by your trade union

  • membership fees for other associations whose purpose is to safeguard the professional interests of its members

  • special contributions to an association intended to cover contributions for retired members

You are entitled to deduct all paid unemployment insurance fees and contributions to early retirement and flex allowance schemes.

Enter the total amount in field 439 in your preliminary income assessment, for example when you start or stop contributing to one of the schemes.
