Denmark as a Nordic headquarter
According to a unique Danish tax rule a foreign branch of a Danish company is generally not subject to tax in Denmark. Administration costs for handling double tax issues may be avoided by having the Nordic headquarter in Denmark instead of other Nordic countries.
As a result, Denmark is often chosen as a company’s centre for Nordic or other European activities. In such cases, a company may establish a Danish company (A/S or ApS) which can then establish a branch in other Nordic or regional countries.
