Denmark- Establishing a Business

Denmark encourages innovation and entrepreneurship. If you are a Nordic or EU/EEA citizen, you can start your own business in Denmark. If you are a citizen from outside the Nordic countries, EU/EEA and Switzerland, you have to apply for a residence and work permit in order to be self-employed and/or operate an independent company in Denmark.

Establishing a business in Denmark is easy and quick. A company can be setup and ready to do business within a few hours. There are few formalities and everything can be done on-line.

  • Make Denmark your Nordic headquarter
    Chose Denmark as your company's headquarter for Nordic or other European countries for enormous benefits in terms of tax, research and other Government support. After set up of Danish headquarters, you can establish a branch in other Nordic or regional countries.

    A Danish company can also be treated as Nordic headquarter or as a holding company for other European activities.
  • Advantages of establishing a company instead of a branch office
    It is much simpler, faster and more cost-efficient to establish a company rather than a branch. A new company can be registered and ready to do business within a few hours. The registration process of a branch may take several weeks and be more costly.

    Another advantage of establishing a company in Denmark is that according to a unique Danish tax rule a foreign branch of a Danish company is generally not subject to tax in Denmark. Administration costs for handling double tax issues may be avoided by having the Nordic headquarter in Denmark instead of other Nordic countries.
  • Manufacturing and service businesses in Denmark
    Manufacturing in Denmark may be carried out in various ways. A foreign company may establish separate production facilities:
    a) either by building, acquiring or leasing such facilities
    b) Having products manufactured by establishing contacts to existing producers of similar products in Denmark.

    Establishing production facilities in Denmark is most often done by establishing a Danish company (A/S or ApS) and letting the company acquire or lease such facilities.

    Service businesses in Denmark may be conducted through a distribution centre, a regional headquarter, or a shared services centre. Services are most often carried out through a Danish company (A/S or ApS), but can also be conducted via a branch or a representative office.

    SE company - the European company
    Denmark has fully implemented the EU rules regarding the European public limited company (SE company) for corporate purposes. The legal framework of the SE company is to a large degree subject to national company law. It is possible to change the nationality and place of residence of the company without liquidation and re-founding.


A Danish company, A/S or ApS, can be established in three different ways

  • On-line registration: A new company can be incorporated and ready to operate within a few hours by using the on-line electronic registration system provided by the Danish Commerce and Companies Agency.
  • Paper registration: A traditional paper registration of the company may still be used but registration will usually take two to three weeks.
  • Acquiring a shelf company: An "off the shelf" company is an already founded and registered company without any previous operations or activities, and can be acquired from day to day. However, as online registration is fast and cost efficient this is the most commonly used procedure.
