SKAT's tasks
SKAT handles the administration of all tasks relating to:

  • taxes
  • duties
  • customs
  • collection
  • assessment of real estate and cars
  • gaming.

Basic conditions for the tax administration
The computerisation of the tax administration and many households makes the dialogue between the authorities and the citizens more and more effective.
The existence of a central population register system (CPR) and a central register for companies (SE) is very important to a simple and reliable identification of taxpayers.
