Danish Tax Laws and Donations.

  1. == This is a post for danes looking to set up donations - without breaking the law ==

    If you are over 13, then you are in the working age. This means that at 13 you can get a MasterCard (or VISA/Dan Kort) and a Bank Account. At 13 You can also activate your Free Card (Frikort), which gives you access to 33.000 DKK (Under 18, kan variere) untaxed a year. (You will always have to pay 8% for Abejdsmarkeds-bidrag). This means that even if you have your Free Card activated you will still have to register your earnings, and they will automatically take 8% from you - if you are earning under 33.000DKK, it isn't "necessary" for you to register your earnings, this may be illegal, but no one will come after you.
    - I would recommend just registering your earnings, for the sake of not breaking the law.


    If you are over 13 (yet under 18) and earn over 33.000 DKK, you have to register as a company. Registering as a company is a simple thing to do. First thing you have to get a CVR.
    You can see how to get a CVR here: http://www.amino.dk/blogs/rolcera/archive/2013/03/13/guide-til-cvr-n-229-r-man-er-under-18.aspx
    Remember that your parents have to send it in, and they have to write their signature.
    After you have done all that, (and you got accepted), the next step is to register as a company by going to: https://indberet.virk.dk/myndigheder/stat/ERST/Start_virksomhed
    Remember when you register to add a picture of the documentation from Statsforvaltningen. This document is legal untill the age of 18.


    If you are over 18, and have a Free Card activated. You have 44.000 DKK untaxed (+8% AM-Bidrag) You just have to register this in as earnings. If you are getting SU at this point, remember, the more you earn, the less SU you get. This is basicly the same story as earlier.

    If you are over 18 and earn over your Free Card limit. You have to register as a company. This is the same, but you do not need to have your parents signature.

    EDIT: Tax Rates for people over 18: (without 8% AM-bidrag)
    Earns in DKK: (before 8%) | Tax Rates: | Tax Rates after 8% AM-bidrag:
    0 - 25.000 | 13.6% (Note that if you earn this little, you don't pay AM, as you don't work)
    25.001 - 50.000 | 6,85% | 14,86%
    50.001 - 75.000 | 14,7% | 22,7%
    75.001 - 100.000 | 19,8% | 27,8%
    100.001 - 125.000 | 24,5% | 32,5%
    125.001 - 150.000 | 26,1% | 34,1%
    150.001- 200.000 | 28,4% | 36,4%
    200.001- 250.000 | 30,3% | 38,3%
    250.001- 300.000 | 31,9% | 39,9%
    300.001- 350.000 | 32,9% | 40,9%
    350.001- 400.000 | 34,1% | 42,1%
    400.001- 500.000 | 35,3% | 43,3%
    500.001- 750.000 | 38,8% | 46,8%
    750.001-1.000.000 | 43,8% | 51,8%
    Over 1.000.000 | 47,8% | 55,8%

    Note that these might be different depending on 1. Your property (cars, houses, bikes etc..) and 2. who you are. (Kids, familiy, married etc..)


    Good luck :D

    EDIT: You do not need to have a PayPal business account either. It just makes things easier.

    Just remembered that danes use periods like North Americans use commas.

    That was confusing for a while.
