If you shop online in another EU country, the price generally includes VAT. You are not required to pay customs duties on goods dispatched from an EU country, but you must pay special duties (excise duties) on some goods.

  • In the EU, you may purchase goods online for your own use without paying customs duty and Danish VAT. In some cases, the seller pays Danish VAT for you.
  • The goods must be dispatched to you from another EU country.
  • You must pay special duties (excise duties) on some goods such as spirits, coffee and sweets. See Goods on which you must pay special duties.

Please see our legal guide (in Danish) for further legal information.
