Increased tax account
The current limit of DKK 200,000 in companies’ tax accounts has been increased to DKK 10 million. The new amount limit will be valid until 30 November 2020. Companies can themselves regulate the amount of the tax amount as the limit, but this can be set at a maximum amount of DKK 10 million, at the earliest on 25 March 2020.
