VAT Rates in Denmark



Standard Rate Reduced Rates

The local name for VAT in Denmark is “Merværdiafgift (Moms)”

Denmark only has a 25% standard rate and a 0% VAT rate.

Recently, there were no VAT rate changes in Denmark, also not due to COVID-19 measures. For more information about (recent) rate change developments in Denmark, please click here.

Standard rate: 25%

This rate applies for all transactions that take place in Denmark, unless an exception applies (such as the zero rate or an exemption, or a reason to treat the transaction as outside scope of VAT).

Zero rate (0%)

  • Newspapers
  • Supplies to ships
  • Supplies of gold to the Danish National Bank

For a description of how the VAT rates are structured in the European Union, please see here.  The European Commission has also made an EU VAT rate database available where you can find the applicable VAT rate by entering the CN/CPA code of the goods respectively services (you can find more information here).

A global VAT/GST rate overview can be found here (note this is a work in progress).
