Income Tax in Denmark in 2018

Taxes, including personal income tax, expenses and limitations are reviewed by the Government in Denmark periodically and typically updated each year. Not that not all tax rates and thresholds in Denmark change annually, alterations to tax policy to support strategic economic growth in Denmark mean that the certain areas may be focused on to provide specific tax relief in Denmark or support growth in certain areas (overseas invstment in Denmark for example may mean reduced non-resident income tax rates in Denmark for a period).

When tax policy in Denmark changes, the resultant tax tables also change. Tax tables in Denmark are simply a list of the relevent tax rates, fixed amounts and / or threholds used in the computation of tax in Denmark, the Denmark tax tables also include specific notes and guidance on the validity of scenarios (for example, qualifying criterea for specific tax relief / allowances) and notes of the calculation of phaseout of specific tax elements within each taxation group (dividends and corporation tax thresholds in Denmark for example).

Denmark Tax Tables may also be referred to as Denmark Tax Slabs, Denmark personal allowances and tax thresholds or Denmark business tax rates. They all refer to the tax tables, whether in whole or as specific sections/categories of the tax tables therein.
