Company Formation in Denmark
Danish Limited Partnerships (K/S)
The best entity for International Trade
The Danish Limited Partnership (K/S) combines the tax transparency and flexibility typical of a partnership with the distinct legal identity advantages of a company. It allows for the complete avoidance of Danish corporate tax if the partners are non-residents and the K/S, registered in Denmark, exclusively conducts its trade outside of Denmark.
This type of limited partnership operates based on a partnership agreement and can be established by two or more members, who may be individuals or legal entities.
The Danish Limited Partnership comprises two types of partners:
General Partner: This partner possesses managerial control, shares the profits of the firm according to predefined proportions, and carries liability for the partnership’s debts.
Limited Partners: Similar to shareholders in a corporation, these partners enjoy limited liability. This means they are only responsible for the debts incurred by the firm up to the extent of their registered investment and do not have any management authority.
Key Tax Advantages:
VAT registration in Denmark is not generally necessary for non-resident partners. In cases where VAT is required for a non-resident K/S, please contact us to explore options, including Shelf Company with VAT.
The K/S enjoys a 0% Danish corporate tax rate if its profits are distributed to offshore partners.
A minimum of two partners is required: one General Partner and one Limited Partner. Offshore entities can be utilized, but at least 50% of the partnership should be held by an EU company or an offshore company with a Double Taxation Treaty (DTT) in Denmark.
Unlike other business structures, Limited Partnerships do not have share capital; instead, they have “capital” contributed by the partners, with the specific amount determined by the partners.
There is no need for a director, as the Limited Partnership can be managed by the General Partner. However, if the plan is to have the Limited Partnership managed by a director, a Danish director is required for successful registration.
