VAT on business events in Denmark

The VAT exemptions on business travel in Denmark ensure significantly lower costs. Here are the complete VAT rules for MICE in Denmark.

Goods and services are subject to VAT in Denmark. But if your Danish congress or meeting is VAT liable, you are – with very few exceptions – entitled to deduct VAT on all your costs. And if your organization is non-profit and the purpose of your congress is educational or scientific, you have various opportunities to choose whether the delegate fee should be VAT liable or VAT exempted.

In order to make it easier for associations, companies etc. from abroad to get an overview of the Danish tax rules, the National Development Organization for Business Tourism, MeetDenmark, in collaboration with The Danish Chamber of Commerce and KPMG Acor Tax, has prepared guidelines regarding VAT on meetings and congresses in Denmark.
