Help your non-Danish employees get off to a good start managing their tax affairs in Denmark, such as being correctly registered, paying the correct amount of taxes and receiving the right tax deductions.

Please find a checklist for employees in English, GermanPolishLithuanian, RomanianItalian and Portuguese.

Checklist - Get your employee off to a good start

  • Your employee needs a personal tax number and a preliminary income assessment including a tax card. Please use our online application form.
  • Your employee needs a NemID. The local Citizen Service Centre (Borgerservice) will help you get one. It may be a good idea to bring an attesting witness. Remember to bring a passport or ID card.
  • Your employee needs a NemKonto. If you contact a Danish bank, they will help you. It is also possible to use a non-Danish account as a NemKonto. Read more.
  • As employer, you are responsible for retrieving your employee’s tax card in E-income. You will receive a letter with the personal tax number and date for when the tax card is available. The letter will be sent by Digital Post.

Please see our legal guide (in Danish) for further legal information.
