Danish businesses have to use their NemID/MitID or NemID employee signature as two-factor authentication.

Non-Danish businesses and the few Danish businesses who cannot get NemID/MitID or NemID employee signature have to use their E-tax password combined with a temporary PIN code. The PIN code adds additional security to the E-tax password so it works like NemID/MitID with two-factor authentication.

Two-factor authentication is required to log on to VAT One Stop Shop which makes it easy for businesses to declare and pay VAT on sales to all of the EU.  

The fact that two-tactor authentication is now required is part of an ongoing security assessment of the Tax Agency’s IT solutions. We want to provide the best possible protection of your business and your data. This is why we ask you to log on by means of two-factor authentication.
