Leaving

When you leave Denmark to move on or you decide to return to your home country, there are several issues you need to be aware of.

You need to:

  • Notify the Citizens’ Service office in your municipality
  • Notify the Danish tax authorities SKAT
  • Notify FerieKonto

Notifying Citizens’ Service

If you leave Denmark to move abroad, you need to deregister from the national register.

If you are moving abroad for less than six months, you can retain your registered address UNLESS you rent out or lend your house or flat.

If staying abroad for longer than six months, you must always deregister or submit a written notification.

All of this can be done by visiting the Citizens’ Service office in person.

Notifying SKAT

You must also notify SKAT that you are returning to your home country so you can conclude your tax affairs.

You have to use form 04.029E (in English)

Notifying FerieKonto

If you live abroad, i.e. you have left Denmark and have deregistered from the Danish National Register of Persons or if you live abroad and you are not registered on the Danish National Register of Persons.

Notifying FerieKonto that you are leaving Denmark will allow any excess holiday pay to be paid out.
