Doing Business in Denmark

Based on the World Bank Doing Business survey, Denmark is ranked top in Europe in terms of ease of doing business and third in the world (2019). It offers a number of competitive advantages as a hub for both domestic and foreign investors to conduct their business and expand globally, which can be summarized with a few highlights:

  • Procedures, time, cost and paid-in minimum capital to start a limited liability company.
  • A Danish limited liability company can be incorporated in Denmark with same day formation.
  • Enforcing contracts and resolving commercial disputes.
  • Protecting minority investors rights in related-party transactions and in corporate governance.
  • Trading across borders.
  • Dealing with construction permits.
  • Flexibility in employment regulation and aspects of job quality.
