Do you live in Denmark and receive social security benefits from another Nordic country?
This applies to you who live in Denmark and receive social security benefits from another Nordic country. The information only applies to tax on the foreign social security benefits. If you receive a pension payment from another Nordic country, see pension.
Taxation in the source country
Social security benefits paid from other Nordic countries may be liable to tax there.
Taxation in Denmark
Social security benefits are liable to tax in Denmark. If you are taxed in the source country, you can claim a deduction from the Danish tax for the tax you have paid in the other country (credit). The deduction is limited to the Danish tax on your foreign income.
Payment of tax
The agency who pays social security benefits is not required to pay withholding tax to the Danish tax authorities. Therefore, you must ask for a new Danish tax card which takes into account the foreign social security benefits and any tax in the source country.
