You can make an approximate calculation of the expected vehicle registration tax on the vehicle you consider importing or exporting.

Please state the taxable value if you want to calculate the registration tax on a new vehicle.

The taxable value is the market price of the vehicle minus the vehicle registration tax. It is as a minimum the sum of the following:

  • The vehicle purchase price outside Denmark converted into Danish kroner.
  • The price of possible options fitted at the factory or by the importer.
  • A margin of at least 9%.
  • 25% VAT.

Please do not enter the first registration date in Denmark (in step 2), but (in step 3) make a note that the vehicle is new. Click on the link below to do calculate the vehicle registration tax.

A vehicle is considered new until it is 4 years old, has run 2,000 km or has been exposed to wear and tear or damages to such an extent that it cannot be sold as a new vehicle.

If you calculate the registration tax on a used vehicle you need the initial price of the vehicle and the market price. The market price is the expected price you will pay at a car dealer.
