Do you have any outstanding debt?

If you have unpaid tax and you still have time to make the payment within the deadline, please see Payments to the Danish Tax Agency at our website for guidance.

If, however, you failed to meet the payment deadline, we will transfer your debt for collection to the Danish Debt Collection Agency (Gældsstyrelsen). The Debt Collection Agency is responsible for collecting any debt owed to public authorities. You can call the Debt Collection Agency on (+45) 70 15 73 04 or read more at www.gaeldst.dk/english

At www.gaeldst.dk/english you can find information about:

  • Paying and gaining an overview of your debt
  • The interest you pay on debt to public authorities
  • The rules on cancellation of debt owed to public authorities
  • Debt when living outside or leaving Denmark
  • Budget template and application form for cancellation of debt owed to public authorities

Please find all contact information for the Debt Collection Agency at www.gaeldst.dk/english/contact. If you need further information, please call the Debt Collection Agency at (+45) 70 15 73 04.

If, for example, you have received a decision or a reminder from the Debt Collection Agency (Gældsstyrelsen) with a statement of your debt, the date listed in the statement does not always match the date shown in the overview. You can find an overview of the different types of debt where the registered date may be different from the date on your statement at www.gaeldst.dl/forstå-din-gæld (please note that the link is in Danish).
