Refund of Danish VAT to foreign businesses domiciled outside EU

Businesses domiciled in countries outside the EU can obtain refund of VAT on goods and services purchased in Denmark. Danish VAT is 25%. Within the retail trade, VAT is included in the total purchase price and therefore it amounts to 20% hereof.

Foreign businesses need to apply for a refund of VAT. The amount is not refunded automatically.
