The Danish parliament has now passed new legislation to meet the potential cash flow challenges for enterprises due to the COVID-19 situation.
According to the new legislation, some payment deadlines have been postponed, thus providing temporary liquidity relief.
The legislation covers the payment of VAT (for large enterprises paying VAT on a monthly basis), employment withholding taxes (for all companies) and on-account corporate taxes (for all companies).
The postponement is only temporary and defers the payment for a few further specified months in 2020, please see the table below:
