Once registered, we can offer you a flexible and tailored solution to assist you with local back office operations, ongoing accounting, tax, payroll and statutory compliance and filing obligations, as well as your management reporting requirements.

The most common types of business entities when entering the Danish market are:

  • Private Limited Company (Anpartsselskab, ApS)
  • Public Limited Company (Aktieselskab, A/S)
  • Branch office
  • Limited Partnership (Kommanditselskab, K/S)
  • General Partnership (Interessentskab, I/S)

Several legal documents are required in order to form a company, such as a trading licence, a registered office, a bank account, and several documents related to the shareholders and the company executives or representatives.

Subsequently, the newly incorporated company needs to register with the tax office and, in the case that it has employees, with the social and health insurance bodies.
