Where to get tax assistance

Aarhus University are not allowed to give personal advice on taxation issues. The services for international staff will be able to assist you in finding general information about tax rules or refer you to the Danish Customs and Tax Administration for specific questions about your personal tax. If you need tax assistance or guidance you can also contact the PwC firm of auditors, but only following approval from your immediate superior.  

Taxation assistance from the Danish tax authorities

The taxation rules are changing over time and it is therefore the Danish Customs and Tax Administration that can give you up to date information on your taxation.

the Danish Customs and Tax Administration consists of a main centre and a number of local tax centres all over Denmark. There is one tax authority which handles all matters concerning tax, labour market contributions, real property valuations, VAT, duties etc. You can contact the Danish Customs and Tax Administration in the following ways:

  • Find information at www.skat.dk. Here you will also find Self-Key Citizen (TastSelv Borger), where you can change your preliminary income assessment and see your tax information in your tax folder.
  • Call the Danish Customs and Tax Administration on +45 72 22 18 18.
  • Email or call the Danish Customs and Tax Administration via Contact the Danish Customs and Tax Administration
  • You can also contact your municipal citizen service centre with questions concerning your tax as well as how to change your preliminary income assessment.

If you wish personal assistance at the tax centre

You need to set up an appointment in advance to receive personal assistance at a tax centre. 

If you cannot find the answer you need at skat.dk, and if they cannot help you over the phone, the Danish Customs and Tax Administration will set up a personal appointment for you with one of their staff. You will be able to get an appointment within five working days.

You may go to any tax centre that you wish. See the tax centres closest to you on www.skat.dk - under Contact
