Change your preliminary income assessment when you start receiving an educational grant (Skoleydelse)

  1. Log on to (E-tax for individuals) using your NemID.
  2. Go to Forskudsopgørelsen 2020 (preliminary income assessment 2020).
  3. In field 216 - Kontanthjælp, delpension og orlovs-/fleks-/ledighedsydelse, flekslønstilskud mm. (social assistance benefits, partial pension and leave allowance, etc.) you write the total grant you expect to receive for the year - before tax. If the field is not visible, go to Oftest tilføjede felter (frequently added fields), choose Arbejdsløs/fleksjob (unemployed/flexible job) and fill out the field. Click on the question mark next to the fields to get more information.
  4. If you have had other income during the year, you need to check that the correct amounts are stated in your preliminary tax assessment. All amounts are stated before tax.
    • Go to Oftest tilføjede felter (frequently added fields), and select Indkomst og betalt skat indtil ændring (income and tax paid before change).
    • Next to the fields, you will see three calculators. They will give you an overview of your income and paid A-tax, which we have registered about you up until now. Click one of the calculators to check that the numbers are correct. If you have not received any salary, student grant or production school grant or paid A-tax for one or several months, you enter a "0" in the relevant fields for that month.
    • Click Overfør (transfer) in the left corner. 
  5. Click Beregn (calculate) at the bottom of the page and check that you have got the numbers right.
  6. Click Godkend (approve).

Thank you - you are done!

Please contact the Danish Tax Agency (Skattestyrelsen) if you have any questions.


When you start to receive an educational grant, you need to change your preliminary income assessment.

This applies if you will be getting an educational grant because you begin studying at a production school.

If you have gone from a job or other income to receiving an educational grant, you can read more about what you should do at Skift fra job til SU eller skoleydelse (change from job to educational grant (SU) or production school grant)
