Coming to Denmark for the first time to work and live? Some different practical manners must be done. See a list of what to do with taxes and more on SKAT's website.
How and when to pay tax
When working in a Danish company in Denmark, you have to pay taxes starting from your first day at work. This type of tax is referred to as income tax.
When arriving in Randers you should contact the local tax center in order to get a preliminary income assessment, a tax rate, and a deduction card. The local tax center will also be able to help you if you have questions regarding your personal taxes, and taxes in general.
Besides income tax, you also have to pay property tax if you own any real estate. In addition, you pay indirect taxes when you purchase some products, such as cigarettes and alcohol.
Tax benefits for researchers and commuters
Foreign researchers benefit from favourable tax schemes. Also, you can receive certain tax deductions if commuting more than 12 kilometres to work. This can be an economic benefit to living in Randers, as the rent is much lower here than in the surrounding cities. Hence, profitably you can live in Randers, but work in one of the surrounding cities like Aarhus or Aalborg.
