When you work in Denmark but live somewhere else, you are subject to limited tax liability. If you travel between your home outside Denmark, Sweden or Germany for example, each day and your workplace in Denmark, you will never become subject to full tax liability no matter how long a period you work in Denmark.

This means that you are taxed on your salary here in Denmark and that you are entitled to deduct expenses related to your Danish salary such as deduction for transport between home and work, travelling expenses, trade union fees and unemployment fund contributions.

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