Getting started is easy

Establishing a business as a legal entity is quick and easy once all the documents are in place. Company registrations can be made online at a fixed fee below EUR 100 excluding legal costs. At 22%, the corporate Danish tax is below the OECD average.  

Top choice for a European or Nordic expansion

A highly educated workforce, flexible labour market regulations and low employer social security contributions make Denmark an attractive base for expanding your business into Europe or the Nordic region.

The Danish business culture is dynamic and experienced in international relations. On moving to Denmark, international companies are soon ready for business and experience smooth and easy access to other countries in the region.

Flexible labour regulations and a good social security net are a benefit to employers and employees alike. While employers have good opportunities to hire and fire according to their business needs, employees have a high level of security when changing jobs – increasing their mobility.

Motivated, educated and efficient employees

Finding multi-lingual staff in Denmark is easy. Denmark ranks second on the EF English Proficiency Index 2020. You will find that most Danes understand the other Nordic languages, too.

Danes also have the highest worker motivation in the world according to the IMD World Talent Report 2020. Danish employees distinguish themselves by being efficient, process-oriented and willing to take responsibility.

When you set up your headquarters in Denmark, you will not only benefit from a ready and able workforce. You will experience an unrivalled work-life balance, flat organisational structures and good Danish welfare services – just a few of the reasons why Denmark is a great place to live.
