When you run a registered business, you have to make annual accounts and report VAT every quarter. VAT registered companies have to submit their VAT accounting to the tax office while limited companies are also required submit their annual report to the Danish Business Authority.


VAT or moms in Danish is an indirect tax that you collect from your customers and send to the tax office. As a VAT registered company, you can also receive VAT (25%) from the stuff that you pay for your company that have VAT on the invoice.
