If you have more than 24 km to and from work (that is more than 12 km each way), you are entitled to a deduction for transport between home and work no matter the means of transport (car, train, bus, bike, etc.). 

All kinds of paid work, including student jobs and salary subsidy jobs, give you the right to the deduction.

However, you are not entitled to the deduction if:

  • your employer pays for the transport
  • you have a company car at your disposal
  • you are a student and travel between your home and place of study. The state education grant (SU) is not considered salary.
  • you are an unpaid intern.

The actual deduction is approx. 26%. So if your deduction for transport between home and work is DKK 1,000, the value of this deduction is approx. DKK 270.
