Registration, banking and taxes

Having obtained a work and residence permit in Denmark, you need to register with the municipality in which you will reside. 


Banking (NemKonto and NemID)
When working in Denmark, you must have a Danish Bank account and a NemKonto (easy account).

The NemKonto is used by the public authorities when transferring money to you - for instance tax refunds or child benefits. Your bank will assist you in activating your NemKonto and ordering your personal NemID.

NemID is a digital signature and the key to digital Denmark. NemID is a single login for public websites, your online banking, insurance and many other websites and services. Login is made with a username, password and key card and the login procedure is always the same.

Media license

In Denmark everyone having a TV, computer or mobile phone with internet access are legally obliged to pay for media licence. You are required to register for a licence no later than 14 days after you have acquired an appliance. The media licence includes all appliances in the households of married couples, couples living together and children living at home with their parents. Payment is roughly DKK 2000,- per year and invoiced twice a year.

You can read more about the media license on the DR website.


In Denmark each person has a personal registration number - better known as a CPR number (Central Person Register). The CPR number is essential in relation to any contact with the Danish authorities and especially in connection to tax and social security issues. The CPR number consists of ten digits. The first six digits are your date of birth (day, month, year) and the last four digits provide a unique identification number and indicate your sex. Even numbers for women and odd numbers for men. A CPR number is personal and unique to you for the rest of your life. It will be re-activated if you ever return to Denmark.

To obtain a CPR number, your Settwell counsellor will take you to the local municipality, International House Copenhagen or the International Citizen Service centers in Aalborg, Aarhus and Odense.


Denmark is a welfare state and is based on the concept of its residents having equal access to various services paid for by taxes.

When employed in Denmark, you must acquire a valid tax card from the authorities.

Researchers and key employees recruited from abroad can in some cases qualify for the 27% tax scheme and your employer will typically apply on your behalf and advise how to proceed.
