Global mobility

International secondment and relocating employees and labour across borders

Let us advise you when moving employees across borders

In an ever-changing world, global mobility is crucial to the success of your business. However, with complex legislation and changing regulations, keeping up can be challenging.

When working internationally, either via secondment or by working across national borders, it is crucial that you have a clear understanding of the financial obligations placed on the company by the Danish and foreign tax authorities. This applies equally to the employee as to the employer.

Social security agreements

When you work abroad, as a Danish citizen you do not automatically have access to Danish social benefits. To maintain Danish rights, you must apply for Danish social security. We offer advice on the application of the agreements and correct payment of social security contributions, including:

  • Advice on social security and rights in Denmark and abroad
  • Assistance with social security applications to Danish and foreign social security authorities
  • Advice on how to comply with the respective country’s regulations
  • Drafting employment and secondment contracts
  • Calculating social security costs in Denmark and abroad
  • Registration and payment of social security in Denmark and abroad



Tax in the Øresund Region (The Øresund Agreement)

If you are a private employee and commute daily between Sweden and Denmark, you are very likely covered by the Øresund Agreement.

The Øresund Agreement is a tax agreement between Denmark and Sweden that entitles you, as a commuter, to be taxed on your entire salary in the country where you normally work, i.e. in your country of employment. The tax agreement also applies when you perform work outside your country of employment, i.e. in your country of residence, for example, when you work from home or in a third country.

To be covered by the Øresund Agreement, work in the country of work must account for at least half of the working hours in any three-month period.

If at least half of the working days in a three-month period take place in the country where you work, your entire salary for that period will be taxed at source, i.e. via your Danish/Swedish employer.

Our consultancy services help you navigate the legislation so you can focus on what matters most - your business. Contact us today for a customised solution that meets your needs.
