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.

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