  • Expand operations and create new jobs, and the business is unaffected by hostilities;

  • The business is focused on new markets and plans to change business activities due to loss of infrastructure/assets due to hostilities. Grant funds may be awarded for the creation of new jobs, retention of existing jobs.

If you work abroad while staying in Denmark, you will normally be tax liable in Denmark. In this case you need to get the tax card made as well.

When moving to Denmark you must also inform the tax authorities about your foreign properties and income from abroad (e.g., real estate, pension, stocks etc.). Passive foreign income also falls under taxation in Denmark.

You must also establish a Nemkonto to get benefits from the state. Nemkonto is the account where the state will pay benefits. You can make your Nemkonto using either a Danish or a Ukrainian bank account here mceclip0.png.
