A Danish company is a great platform for Nordic expansion

Denmark offers a unique tax rule according to which foreign branches of a Danish company are generally not subject to paying tax in Denmark.

This makes a Danish company an ideal platform for Nordic and European expansion from which to set up branches in other countries.

Moreover, establishing a company in Denmark is simpler, faster and more cost-efficient than establishing a branch. It only takes a few hours to register a company ready for business whereas it usually takes several weeks, and is more costly, to register a branch.

“We chose Copenhagen because of its prime location with access to a large talent pool in Greater Copenhagen, covering Eastern Denmark and Southern Sweden. In Copenhagen, we felt we could create a Nordic headquarters with a high level of professionalism, and this turned out to be true.”

separatorKasper Grønnegaard, Nordic Director of JDE Coffee Retail
