Foreigners working in Denmark benefit from the Danish welfare system

When you are working in Denmark, you benefit from the Danish welfare system. In addition, if you are a key employee or a researcher, you may also be subject to the particularly favourable 26% tax scheme. In this scheme, key employees and researchers recruited abroad pay a much lower tax for the first five years in Denmark. The 26 % is calculated after a 8% tax oft he full income.
