The Danish government has done a lot to make Denmark an attractive place for investment and new business ventures. This is also the case for Randers.

The Danish government has forged private-public partnerships for research, communications, and information technologies to help build a solid infrastructure and encourage growth in the private sector.

Freelance Possibilities

Before starting out on your own, you may wish to "test the waters" and use your skills in a freelance capacity. One way to do that without registering a company is through a freelance bureau that handles the administrative end of freelance work, while you take care of the creative end.


Companies founded in Denmark must be registered with the Danish Business Authority (Erhvervsstyrelsen) no later than eight days prior to the commencement of dutiable activities. When you register your business, you will receive a CVR number. The CVR number is the company's identification number. The CVR number must be used when the company identifies itself to public authorities and private entities, for example, in connection with issuing invoices, etc. Information about the CVR number can be found at The Central Business Register.
