Understanding POS Exports in Denmark: A Guide to the SAF-T Cash Register File

  • Transactions conducted through POS systems in Denmark are saved in an electronic journal
  • Exports from the journal need to be presented in the SAF-T cash register file upon request from the Tax Authority
  • The SAF-T export file contains detailed information about a business’s sales transactions, including date, time, value, and VAT rate
  • The file also includes information about returns, discounts, or refunds issued
  • The Danish cash register SAF-T file was developed based on OECD recommendations
  • Guidance on generating the SAF-T files can be found on the Fiscal Portal in English.
